      weird spot right? Fishy play, and I should have read it for extreme strength, but the pot odds required I call down with TPNK... right? Or am I being a donkey for paying a fish off when I'm obviously beat.

      Oh, and BU was unknown at the start of the hand, but his betsizing revealed him to be a fish.

      On that flop i like c/c and re-evaluating on the turn. There are pretty much no draws and i often find fishy players take the check as a sign of no ace and take a stab at the pot. He'll also give you value himself if he has a queen.

      As it is it's probably just best to wait for a better spot after getting min raised on the flop although air is definitely some part of his range.

      c/c is fine, although you can also b/c to min-raise, although then you see a lot of times that he holds there Ax himself.
      But since you can´t fold to min-raise then I like your flop and turn play.
