      Without more info on villain I would also call such a small raise and note down his line afterwards. What was it, some FD or complete bluff?

      It sounded like A4 to me :D It really depends on villain. Some players take this line with any Ax. Others always have 2P or better here. You are getting better than 3 to 1 though, which makes it a tough laydown. Without reads I'd also call him. We might be ahead and if we're not, I expect we have some outs. Also, he'll probably slowdown on a :heart: , a 2, a 3. So, even if we're behind now, there's a chance we'll get to see a cheap showdown and then you can note down what he's doing that with.

      cheers!
