      Villain was 52/5 over 70 hands.

      As usually this kind of villain plays good hands in a passive way I took his bet as a bluff and I shoved over, althrough a fold wouldn't be that hard to find.

      With Kc I call. Here it's a fold. You rarely see less than Ax betting out in that situation.

      Yeah it's a fold maybe he would limp with AA or AK but his pfr is 5% which means medium to strong pocket pairs and medium to strong aces and 50 hands isn't much. He donks for a full size bet and I think he doesn't bluff here very often and could be semibluffing with a pair and a draw. If you hold Kc against his range it's a push but only if he donk bet's like this with all his range pocket pairs and aces.

      I agree with previous posters. I would just fold it as he will show Ax + redraw/flush/set too often to say this could be profitable. I doubt he's bluffing when he donks pot here and I think he's never folding to shove here. I don't think player who raises 5% of his hands pre can become maniac postflop and bluff on such a coordinated board.

      Agreed. Even if he is bluffing, he'll often do so with a random club in his hand, meaning you still very reasonably lose with two cards to come. Whereas if you're wrong and he's already ahead, you might be 1-outing.


      Hope it helps.
