      Once upon a december... ...on a 6th of december Santa was playing NL5

      He had been folding low to middle hands and suddenly he was dealt a magic hand:
      Known players:
      UTG2 = ($2.40)
      MP1(Santa) = ($5.17)
      BUFFER = ($2.19)
      MP3 = ($9.15)
      CO = ($3.23)
      BU = ($5.34)
      SB = ($5.00)
      BB = ($2.73)
      UTG1 = ($2.14)

      Preflop: Santa is MP1 with Q:spade: , Q:club: .

      Round 1: Wow, QQ I must be ahead... ...The bad buffer calls with 1/4 of his stack
      UTG1 folds, UTG2 raises to $0.15, Santa raises to $0.50, Buffer calls $0.50, 3 folds,

      Round 2: Oh-oh SB goes all-in and we haven't seen him playin' in the last 15 hands seems pretty sure he is holding KK or AA
      SB raises to $5.00, BB folds, UTG2 calls $2.25(All-In), Santa folds, MP2 calls $1.69(All-In).

      Final Pot: $8.45.
      Results follow:

      SB shows a pair of kings(K:spade: K:heart: ).
      Buffer shows two pairs, aces and tens(A:heart: T:heart: ). Wow why did he do that? he is a fish
      UTG2 shows a pair of nines(9:club: 9:spade: ).

      A few hands later Santa was dealt an other magic hand:

      Known players:
      UTG2 = ($5.00)
      MP1(Santa) = ($5.05)
      Buffer = ($5.98)
      MP3 = ($10.26)
      CO = ($2.55)
      BU = ($5.37)
      SB = ($5.00)
      BB = ($2.53)
      UTG1 = ($2.31)

      Preflop: Santa is MP1 with K:heart: , A:heart: .
      2 foldsSanta raises to $0.20, Buffer raises to $5.98(All-In), 5 folds
      Now the ball is back to Santa. Do you think he should have called? No reads except the prev. hand, poker tracker: small sample-useless

      Final Pot: $6.25.
      For the story to be complete Results follow:

      Buffer shows a pair of aces(A A).
      Santa wins with a flush.

      against such an obivious fish, I'd love to call with AKs.
      Because I expect to be way ahead against his range.

      If you want to avoid variance I guess you can fold, too.
      And wait for another spot to stack him with a set or something.

      Best regards,

      Hard to say, i think you're rarely wrong when you call it off since he's a bad, spazzy fish. But it's worth noting that

      - in the previous hand he didn't just jam, he called and then went nuts because there was a lot of action. It's a wildly different situation for some player.

      - he won the previous hand by getting it in as a dog and sucking out, so he really has no reason to be full of it unless it's euphoria and he feels untouchable.

      Hope it helps.
