      94/11, 48% agg.freq. f/t/r 44/50/53, donk bet 41%, 67 hands. I saw him bluffing with a similar line 1-2 times, but I didn`t have reads about the sizings at this time.

      I think preflop is fine with 2 fishes in the blinds.

      Postflop?

      Hey AchillesBG,

      Usually you would be folding by the turn at least here, so your call down really depends on the quality of your read.

      Might be relevant what type of hand he was bluffing with also. Was it a draw? Or just some random Q-high? There are less draws he can bluff with on an A62r, so maybe his range gets weighted toward showdown.

      Might be a profitable call - won't be necessary in order to beat the guy though. He'll still donate to you when you have a hand that's a clear call, so it all comes down to what you think about his bluffing frequencies when you hold A8.

      Because of his sizings I am inclined to fold turn or river. 2x in his range, call on the river is too expensive. Also river card completes 43 which are also in his range. He is agro but without a sizing read by default pot is equal to strength.
      And also his prf is pretty low, that mans he is not 3betting a lot, so he is able to play this way even tp with better kicker.
      And there is no possible flush draw on the flop, so we can't profitably bluff catch here in my opinion.
