      MP1 shows a pair of jacks (9s 7s)

      Hero wins with two pairs, queens and jacks (Qh Kc)

      I normally don't call these all-ins even against such loose players. This time I just had a feeling and I think I saw him lose last time that made him tilt. Question is, should I be on the safe side and just fold it?

      Even tho i regularly see people that just decide to check/jam the nuts on the flop for no good reason really, i also constantly see people doing it with utter crap, so especially if i have reasons to believe he's prone to tilting, i'm not folding TP2K either in that spot. And if even I am not folding, then it's a standard call for most players at nl5. NH.

      Hope it helps.
