      What about his fold to 3bet? Usually, without information about his tendencies against 3bet I would just call.

      On the flop calling is fine.

      Once he checks the turn betting is good, but when he goes for a check/minraise I would fold there.
      I doubt he is going to play worse hands like this.

      The river is a fold as well.

      Against such an idiot I'd 3-bet this hand as a default for value.

      Raise flop, you can make him call some random holdings and you give him worse prize to chase for draws.

      As played, bet turn bigger, you want him to call with worse and make him to pay as much as possible.. River is a call though. His line is weird, and it's unlikely that we can get value from lot worse.

      Why this and not judge's line? His high AF and his odd lines tells me that he has nothing there. High WTSD supports that. Never folding TP against this guy.

      I would really need some more information before calling him down here with weak top pair, when there are quite a lot of better hands on the board, and he is taking such and extraordinary line.
