      call. if he goes instant all-in with a straight, he is just dumb. since the best way to win more money, is either a small bet, or slowplaying. he might have a flush draw, and semi-bluff at you. evin if he has a straight, or makes his flush, you have 2x 6 outs to make your full house.

      Hi sw0ldo!

      I would call as well. He limp/called preflop which could mean a small pocket pair or suited connectors. I also think he pushes his flushdraw to maximize his fold equity. I would call here.

      @ Mashadar: he only has 4 outs to a full house ;)

      Good luck at the tables!

      here was my thought process

      would he limp with AK? doubtfull.. and if he did would he call-raise with it.. probably

      would he go all in with straight on flop? ofc not.. unless he was scared of the flush

      so i sat there for about 2 mins contemplating it.. and finally called.

      he flips over Q10 for the straight

      You were ahead against his hand range and made the correct decision. If he had QT: so be it.

      Good luck at the tables!
