      BU was 36/0/0 over 12 - an unknown, likely a recreational player

      FLOP
      Minraise often = nuts, but still, 10 outs (only 4 clean though). I still can't find a fold in these spots. Should I always fold here vs unknowns?

      TURN
      Plan was to x/c.

      RIVER
      Small bet on a scary river card often = value. I guess it's an easier fold on the river as villain would have to be a complete monkey/aggro/spewtard to have ballz to bluff on this river and so far villain showed no signs of these 'diseases' whatsoever.

      Is this me being me (AKA calling station) or are there any reasons to call these flop/river bets?

      Hi David,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I would fold here on the flop especially without even a backdoor. You are OOP, 2 more streets left and you can't really play a big pot.

      As played fold the river imo.
