      He looks strong here. His river bet just bagging for a call. I'm folding my TPGK in the river.

      difficult hand :D .actually I like your play.
      I'd call on flop because his range is wide and he is aggressive so I can still be good agaist some weaker Jx,draws.
      Board: 2c Jc 8s

      equity win tie pots won pots tied
      Hand 0: 41.983% 39.45% 02.54% 16402 1054.50 { KcJd }
      Hand 1: 58.017% 55.48% 02.54% 23069 1054.50 { 88, 22, AJs, KJs, QJs, JTs, J8s, T9s, AJo, J8o, T9o }

      Only minraise on flop but I think not good spot to 3bet with tptk.
      On turn and river- problem is that he is aggressive and can barrel ,can bet with tpgk and you can still have ~ 30-35 % equity ,so call is still EV+.You need reads on him to call river profitably-can he bet 3 streets with tpgk.Against normal opp I'd fold river.
      GL :)

      P.S. sorry ,bit off topic

      Marginal situation. Its hard to get away from this hand before the river, but after that turn card its hard to imagine many hands he can hold that we have beat.

      I am sure fishy villain is capable of doing this with pretty much any J, but also with any 2p and any set. We dont beat alot of the range he could have here. The turn card is ugly... depending on how defensive you want to be it could be a good point to give up.

      If you call turn you cant really fold river as the river is an effective blank (even idiots dont often bet on backdoor flush draws). Its a train wreck that we just cant get away from and have to pay the fish if he is good unfortunately.

      I think id play exactly the same lines vs 53/38 (45).

      Sometimes when me or veriz aren't sure about a hand we can "refer" it to the professional judges. We are definately not ignoring any hands..
      If you want my opinion here I think I would call him down since it's cheap but expecting to be beat mostly, which is why I doubt that you really should call him down. Folding TPGK to so small bets kinda suck though, and against this fish... so yeah, I'm not sure :)

      Nice hand, well played. Against so aggressive player it's fine to Call down.

      Best regards,
