      I wouldn't check back that river, fish often donk shove instead of check/shoving when they make the flush on the river, and a guy with 5x vpip just has too many Ax combos that he won't fold there for me to check back my two pairs, i think it's a bet even if we're forced to bet/call it.

      As played obviously not the best result for us, we're getting incredible odds to call but at the same time it's just very unlikely that this player is raising there with a worse made hand. Maybe he sometimes decides to turn some marginal crap hand into a bluff when the hearts get there. If you've ever seen him do something weird with aggression call it off, otherwise i don't mind a fold tho most people would just call hoping he sometimes spazzes.

      Hope it helps.
