hi pokerspants,

Very easy fold preflop for me, this is not a hand I'm limping in with behind a limper. The sample size is tiny with only 10 hands but he has called preflop with every single one of them, so yeah it's fair to say he's probably going to end up being very loose-passive. I'll be raising to isolate him a fair bit more than normal but with a wider range of value hands, not limping along with small suited connectors inviting opponents behind to raise me. And 43s is too weak to iso with no significant reads on either this villain (how he plays post flop) or the rest of the table, so I just pass.

I also think this is a fold on the river. Although we really have no read on post flop play this large all in overbet is usually a value bet, and I don't think he's doing it with just trip J's. I think we are going to see a bigger flush here bare minimum, probably a full house. Basically this bet sizing and betting sequence completely polarizes his range to a monster or a bluff, and a bluff makes no sense in this spot, so I think mostly he's stacking us. And our hand strength is really only a bluff catcher... even though we have a flush with his range being polarized our hand is really no different than if we held AK... his entire value range beats both, and both beat any bluffs he may have.

Just almost never see this line as a bluff, especially from a guy who is probably passive, so fold the small flush imo.
