      Villain is unknown over 60h. Managed to get 36/7/3.0 over these hands.


      Assuming, that our friend here is pretty fishy, just because of his stack, is it possible, that he would be playing some AJ+ or lower pockets this way? Was really unconfident about this one, but since Titan has no Time Bank, and it was a turbo table, i could have made the wrong decision.

      Ch/mini raise on rainbow flop like this usually means hands on the top of fish's range (set or TPTK). so nice fold.

      Hi,


      It's possible he's dumb enough to try and inforaise a worse pocket pair, but you're not really asked to call $1.5 to find out, it's a committing raise on his part so you can't really fold after calling that.

      I'd say if it's the first time you've seen him do that I'm fine with folding, otherwise you decide not to fold and probably see an awfully played lower pocket pair often enough to justify calling down or even jamming the flop if you think he won't raise/fold the worse hands he has in his minraising range.


      Hope it helps.
