      Should i really let go here? Actualy just now looking at the hand, i understood that i should've let go, because there are quite some hands that could be played this way. Sets, straights. Is he doing this with weaker hands? If the fold option here is right, then i guess its the same thing if we have aces here, right?

      All one pair hands have the same relative value yes, they're bluff-catchers mostly, which means first and foremost that shoving isn't really an option. If we're beat we're just losing more money, if he's bluff he won't call the raise. If you believe villain could be thinking he slowplayed TT-QQ there this is more complicated and you usually have to call, but it's a long shot.

      Now it is possible that villain whiffed something like T8/JT and felt like bluffing there even tho he looks kinda passive overall. Problem is he could have any and all two pairs/straights on that board he is clearly loose enough for that, he could also have slowplayed a set or something since the begining. Usually I won't make that call on that board unless I've seen villain not valuebetting two pairs before, in which case his range might be polarized enough for us to bluff-catch.

      Hope it helps.
