      As usual in poker there is no absolute truth. You'll see some guys go nuts with Tx with or without a heart to go with it figuring they're protecting (even tho a minraise doesn't protect squat), you'll see naked Ah hands, you'll see random nonsense hands from players who just figured the board looks scary enough to screw with you. Hell i even saw people taking that line with stuff like 87o no heart.

      So you just have to go with your instincts and the few things you saw from that player so far. The tighter he is the more it becomes a fold, the more spewy he is the more you can feel good calling it off. I don't really think you can fault either play against an unknown at nl5, one just has higher variance than the other.

      Hope it helps.
