      Flop: ($3) 2 T 3 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $1.75, SB calls $1.75

      Turn: ($6.50) 7 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($6.50) 4 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $4.75, SB raises to $16, Hero ?

      He was playing in all the tables of NL50, that means 9 with me, some dynamic growing up, he tried one stack bluff in 3bet pot against me, i was being aggressive with him too because he was stealing almost 100% from bu and SB.
      Not long before he did me other raise on the river, cant remember the spot, but i folded after thinking a bit..

      Hi,

      I think you kind of have to lean towards calling here. You don't win very often but he already has shown he is not the typical opponent from what you've said so he is capable of bluffing or showing aggression on river. His river AFq also shows that so I think you have to call with your straight. He has a flush sometimes but it's not beyond possibility for him to have a set and play like this or a bluff. A set can play like this expecting you to never have a flush therefore it can raise for value against most people and against most hands.
