      I knew he was bad,and he caught something on the flop...but his limping and check raising seamed like a bluff and with two overcards i decided to play on.The turn i think i should have release my hand...maybe even the flop wasn't good thinking back :f_confused:
      What do you think?

      Flop isn't horrible if he's insane but you do have to think about it differently. You're putting in half your stack so you're committed to calling a turn shove on most cards, you are not playing for your overcard outs. You're playing AQ-high for value thinking he's just full of shit with air enough of the time, and you have some outs the times you're wrong.

      30/15/1.9 player doesn't especially strike me as somebody who would pull that kind of stuff all that often, and even if he's bad he might actually be turning a better hand like 55 into a bluff, which is no good for our AQ-high. I don't think it's worth the call down, so I'd just fold the flop. On the turn as played i'm calling, nothing got there, he was doing that with air or a flushdraw we're likely still ahead and that's why we called on the flop, so folding would be bad in my opinion.

      Hope it helps.
