      He took quite some time before calling preflop - probably he was thinking about raising but limped AA/KK/AJ/AQ. I know it's kinda unlikely but might happen. Thou he kinda fast checked on flop and then insta raised. I think I will get in better spots to put my money in. Right?

      That does look suspicious considering he had no problem raising 1/3 of his hands until then. If he had been a tad shorter stacked we would have had no choice but to call it off.

      As it is, I still don't mind folding if you get a bad vibe off his line in general, it's very hard for him to get it in drawing close to dead unless he's completely out of his mind (most of the time he'll still show up with some random diamond at worse), while it's kind of easy for you to call it off with very few outs if you're behind.

      Hope it helps.
