      Not necessarily for hours, but a few minutes yes. Trying it any other way = tilt, whether it works or not. I'd call the turn bet too, but the river bet is too close. I have to say fold, even with your read of betting bottom pair.

      I somehow doubt someone will bet 3 streets with bluff on this turn and river, so I tend to fold river. If turn and river were more or less blanks calling would be fine and letting him bet his worse hands. You may raise flop if he bets with anything he has as it would be vraise then against worse hands, but that would mean you have to bet turn because c/r and checking back turn just looks somehow clumsy.

      Hey!

      Against a loose fish, definitely raise that flop. Your hand is strong enough and you're not afraid of getting the money in against such a player. Also, you have to protect, since there are many draws + overcards which could make the board a bit uglier.

      As played, if your read is accurate that he's been betting all the time, I don't mind calling him down, sine we don't have to be good that often to make it profitable.
