      CO beaver100 ($25)
      BTN Hero ($39.81)
      SB fredocles ($41.26)
      BB e1ekt_ru ($25.92)

      Pre-Flop: ($0.35, 4 players) Hero is BTN 6:diamond: 3:diamond:
      1 fold, Hero raises to $0.75, 1 fold, e1ekt_ru calls $0.50

      Flop: 8:diamond: 8:club: 5:heart: ($1.60, 2 players)
      e1ekt_ru checks, Hero bets $1, e1ekt_ru calls $1

      Turn: K:diamond: ($3.60, 2 players)
      e1ekt_ru checks, Hero bets $2.75, e1ekt_ru calls $2.75

      River: 7:diamond: ($9.10, 2 players)
      e1ekt_ru checks, Hero bets $6.50, e1ekt_ru goes all-in $21.42

      Can I fold this ? I both see arguments for calling and folding.

      I would call because :

      He could be turning weak made hands like 66/99 into a bluff since he realizes he's most likely beat because of my 3th barrel.

      He might also be going for a thin value shove with a 8x hand.

      I would fold because :

      The board offers fullhouse,flush and straight possibilities so I would expect people to call here with hands like A8 alot of the time instead of shoving.

      Turning made hands into bluffs is still a bit advanced and I don't believe your average NL25 player does it frequently so I think they rather choose to call or fold.

      How does this change against a TAG, a 35/12 player and a LAG?

      no stats on players because TAGs would c/R turn with 8x and 55 imo

      If this guy is a fish, he can continue slowplaying Turn with 8x so hands you are worrying about is 87s, 55, 77, K8s

      But if 87s, there is also 98s, T8s, 86s

      I think folding is ok since you have a baby flush but calling is also ok depending on tendencies (=stats)
