      I wouldn't call the river, villain could easily have overpair, two pairs, trips, straight, flush or even a straight flush... just there are too many hands what would win you. Just drop the hand. Lets see what judges advice.

      Nice hand, you played exactly the way advice shortstacks to behave. With two overcards it's clearly not profitable to call villain's river bet.
