      FLOP
      When villain raises flop I really don't given him much credit. I put him on Jx/FD/A:dx. I chose to call down to keep all of his bluffs in.

      TURN
      FD completed but he still has a wide bluffing range.

      RIVER
      The worst possible card. Now all I beat is random crap with A.
      I guess I should make a crying fold even though I need only 21.49% equity to BE. I've seen so many random bluffs though that it's very hard to do this :f_biggrin: so should I?

      Hi.

      QQ is at the bottom of your range here and I would fold this. The Jack is one of the most terrible cards to bluff at, and I do think that you can consider calling down with A:dAx and JX. Whereas with QQ it seems like a clear fold to me unless you specifically have a read that he's firing off randomly all the time which I am doubtful. I think the river jack as well as the mere 1/3 pot bet left on the River should freeze up most of his bluffs.

      Thanks.
