      It's top pair second top kicker.

      It does look like he has a strong hand, Trips IMO. He called you preflop (set mined) and raised every street, in which case you have to give him credit.
      This is read/stat dependent IMO, Would he really do this with a missed flush draw?

      Never call that bet on the river. Put his range into PokerStove and you will see you are behind often.

      Hi,


      I have no idea what it means to have "ideal aggression".

      If he's some random aggro fish i'm calling down, if he's a reg i'm folding the river even tho it's weird for him not to check/raise that flop with a set where it's hard for you to have anything, most regs on nl5 still aren't anywhere good at poker.


      Hope it helps.
