      I figured I'm totally out of line here, almost regardsless of what he's got. Anyway, what is the best line here? Call turn and evaluate river? Check back turn and bet river?

      I'd check/back turn and call his bet or bet/fold for value on river myself.

      When raised on the turn I think its okay to fold. Hard to put him floating on any Kx OOP off the flop - and he would likely have raised AK pre - and still hard to say he would float with it. He can be bluffing here sometimes but it is likely to be with a PP and he doesn't look the type to be capable. More often than not you're in horrible shape 2 outing or dead imo.

      Hi,

      villain looks according to his stats somewhat decent, although he calls too much (VPIP-PFR gap is too high).
      Call preflop oop - Ch/C Flop - Ch/MinR is a monsterline
      So I'd put him on sth like TT or even 44, but at least 4x, like A4s or 54s. MAAYBE he has sth. like QJs on turn.

      I'd check back for potcontrol and call any riverbet until pot because you showed so much weekness.
      As played I would hate to b/f to a minraise but I think his bluffingrange is too narrow.

      What did he have?
      Let's see what the judges think.

      Best regards,
      Anin

      if you want you can pot control on the turn
      I would also bet myself for value
      After c/r I think call is little better than shove, since he has there often 4x or KT.
      But if you´re planning going anyway with your hand then shove is also ok

      Thanks for the input. But if we call his reraise on the turn, we basically have to c/f all rivers except a K or a 4. I don't understand how we can call the turn without going broke on the river.. I have then invested half of my stack, and getting good odds.
