      Not enough hands on opp for worthwhile stats.
      Timing read: he minraised flop and bet turn superquick.
      I was planning to fold to a river shove but decided to call his small bet :f_biggrin:

      Just 3bet flop and get it in there. Villain might have a draw/combo draw type of hands. When you have top 2 pairs the chance of villain having a set is GREATLY reduced to only 1KK, 1AA, and 3 22.

      However if you have seen him set-mining and ch-raise flop like this before and never plays a draw/TPGK this way, then you might call flop/fold turn but it just sucks. Getting it in with top 2 on that flop is fine.

      I like your line if you think he's pure-bluffing (and you can't fold the river for that price ever) but frankly I doubt it.

      Usually I'll just call to give him another shot at the turn if he's spazzing out with whatever and shove over at that point on blank turns for value against random draws, K2s/A2 and overplayed top pair hands.

      It'd take a very bad vibe for me to put him on exactly 22 and fold in that spot in rush.

      Hope it helps.
