      Hero wins 64.42 BB


      Fold turn? Is it ok to call river as well when I call turn? I think he plays this way 22, and KQ, maybe AT, A2, TT 3bets most likely, and if we include some bluffs with no outs, and bluffs with gutshots, I should be ahead of him.

      Hey GK,

      Given the positions I think he coudl definitely be doing this with worse hands, even like JT and A2, some BD flushes also possible imo.

      Calling the turn is the way to go I think. On the river, wouldn't he bet anything that beats you? Seems liek a spot to value bet to me. If he has like AQ, or any Ax in his range he will be tempted to call.

      I agree I had value on river, but I thought that his raise on turn is polarized, and that he has mostly air which can't call, because he would probably bet 2 pair hands or sets.
      Since I don't have many hands on him, and he seems to be a regg who just joined ipoker, I wanted to see which hands he min raises on turn and calls flop, so I can adjust better in future.
      And now when I see 55 in his raise range, now I can call down more often, because his raise includes besides value hand and draws, gutshots also air hands. Also I think it is very important information that he raises turn and then gives up, so in future I can call his raise and give up river with medium hands ?

      Basically, your assumption that he is very polarised proved correct when he shows 55 so that means that any hand that blocks a lot of his value hands is good too call, even a hand like KK if you double barrel it because he doesn't have AA and you block the straight. Ofc, you don't always bet/bet KK but it's just an example of hand strength + blocker value.
