      Hi lupara,

      I don't see anything wrong in your call.

      Best regards!

      Looks like a fish, but then again which worse hands would he bet 2.5x pot with ?

      Hi.

      Such a weird spot. You are at the top of your range which should make you want to call this vs villain's overbet.

      But villain's stats point out to him being some passive fish. And passive fish don't ever overbet as a bluff. If you have reads on him being an aggro fish then I think you have to call here with such a strong hand.

      Your postflop sample is insignificant, so only your VPIP/PFR over 20 hands could be somewhat meaningful. 65/0 indicates that he is loose (playing 65% of starting hands) and passive (never raising with the hands he chooses to play with).

      As such, by making such an inference from his basic stats, I think this is a fold.

      Thanks.
