      Hi,


      I think i'd call because he's liable to do that with worse two pairs or some kind of combo draw. I wouldn't be that happy about it, but it's kind of a weird line on his part to just be shoving like that after simply calling the flop, most bad players will attempt some kind of small raise trying to sucker you in with a very good hand. Once you've made some of these calls and got shown stuff like 97o or A5hh you're hard pressed to find a fold in those spots.


      Hope it helps.
