      Villain was unknown only few hands looks regish.
      I staked him few hands earlier when i 4 beted Ako and he called ipo than called 2 streets with 10 10 on K73 ss board.
      Should i shove turn or just call ? ( I dont think fold is option correct me if i am wrong?!)
      I thought that call is better so if he bluffs to let him spew more and i think he can do it with 10 10 + and if he had set so be it .

      Fold to the turn min-raise. You got one of the worst Turn cards in the deck, and despite villain being short the min-raise from a passive fish is almost always 2pairs +.

      He has 79 86 56 43s so often, along with 22/55/88/66. We are crushed really hard by this range. If he jams then we could consider calling but this min-raise is much stronger in general.

      Villain showed Q8s so i guess i see his range something like this
      Board: 2d8s5c6h
      Equity Win Tie
      CO 39.69% 39.69% 0.00% { QQ-88, 66-55, 22, A8s, K8s, Q8s, J8s, 97s, 86s, 65s }
      BB 60.31% 60.31% 0.00% { AdAh }
      and i think i have to call
      And he was unknown so i dont know why you think his pasive ??

      I kept thinking this was a single-raised pot vs a mid-stacker. And my default assumption was that most midstackers were fish, and most fish are passive.

      Now this changes things. I still think this is a very gross spot IMO, I think even in 3b pots this is a set/two pair really often. From my own experience this is an easy call vs a jam, but vs a min-raise it gets ugly. I usually talk myself into jamming cos of SPR but I usually see the nuts (and I continue jamming anyway vs normal TAGs and still continue running into the nuts).

      Frankly I don't see any reason for him to be having any raising range here, especially with a bare Top pair hand. How often do people actually min-raise here with a non-nutted hand? My guess is that this is not happening all that much.

      I still think we can bet/fold here.
