      Preflop: Hero is BU with A, T.
      4 folds, CO calls $0.02, Hero raises to $0.08, 2 folds, CO calls $0.06.

      Flop: ($0.19) 2, 5, T (2 players)
      CO bets $0.22, Hero calls $0.22.

      Turn: ($0.63) 2 (2 players)
      CO bets $1.51(All-In), Hero calls $1.01(All-In).

      River: ($3.15) 3 (2 players)



      The player is very loose and because of the raise call I put him on JT,QK,AK but the turn bet was way out of proportion and because of that I didnt though he had TT,JJ,QQ,KK,AA. If he wasnt so loose I probably folded.
      What you think?

      Hi,


      No clue. "Too loose" just isn't good enough of a read to accurately decide what to do in such spots. You'll see 90/0 players that have a range of exactly 22/55/TT to go nuts like that, you'll see 70/50 guys that have a range of exactly airballs to do that since they love to check their monsters and bully you with nothing.

      In a nutshell if he looks spastically aggressive it's a standard call down, if he's your standard limp/calling stationy guy your TPTK is never good. If he's somewhere in the middle flip a coin and know from the begining you can't really play optimally without more reads which means you're bound to be wrong decently often.


      Hope it helps.
