      Average Villian. Seems very ABC. On the flop I was going to get it in but I realized he was not folding. I put him on a Q, a straight, a set, or a fd. After he checks the turn I think he has a set, mostly because you would think he would bet/fold a queen/straight/flush. The river is ugly for our hand and I make a crying call. My question is, is this really a spot to make a crying call or is this a spot to shove? Will I get called by worse if I shove?

      Flop: i think its ok to flat if u think he rarely bluff 3bets here.

      Turn: honestly his range looks so much like sets. I rly dislike the small bet. Bet 7 or 8 and dont let him draw to a boat cheap.

      River: no value in shoving for sure when board pairs.
