      Hero bets $2, UTG folds, UTG+1 folds, MP3 raises to $8.50, Hero calls $6.25,

      Though the board has paired, still it's a bet/push river? It seems like he could easily be on a FH, but he could also just have an A, perhaps even a mid PP.

      It does seem very strange play all I can think of is that he was slow playing Ax hearts or has 66 (or total air of course).

      I think that you beat him often enough to call at 2:1 pot odds though

      NH; no way I'm laying this down. It's probably Ace rag and this just happens to be villain's dream flop where both his Ace and his rag hits big.

      You're ahead far too often here to even consider folding, imo.

      Hey dandycal,

      nice hand. Your straight is hard to notice and opponent can easily 3-bet Ax here, so there's no way I'm folding straight here. Maybe if you had any stats that he's very tight postflop, but very very rarely.
