      The guy was berating me in the chat box after I'd had a good run of cards and my stats being a bit skewed so he thought I was a fish and I'd beat him for quite a bit of money while running hot, so presumed he was just on tilt :P even though he was tight, with him possibly being tilted am I good to call this with the outs I have? Pressumed he was shoving with a pair of aces:

      Hi.

      I don't like raising on the Flop. if you get the money in, you are flipping at best unless you think he's aggro enough to shove any flush draw on the Flop. But most players ship TP with strong kickers, or they may ship sets as well which has you crushed.

      If you call instead, you get to keep the weaker parts of his range in, and you can definitely call two streets and decide on the River whether you want to fold or call. If you improve to two pairs, you can definitely call 3 streets. If you improve to a flush, then you can raise the Turn or River.

      Thanks.
