Hey marvinstan

Interesting spot indeed but I think a fold is best. You say villain hasn't done anything crazy like this before and also if villain was to be bluffing here he would have to be a pretty sick 'good' educated player.

It's not impossible for villain to not have a flush and he could have hands like QJ/Q10, 89 is unlikely but maybe depending on the player type and I doubt he has J10 as he wouldn't be checking back the turn very often imo. I don't think AQ is reshoving all in with flush and straight possibilities out there and it's pretty hard for villain to have AK if he's any good which makes it hard for villain to have a hand that he's turning into a bluff.

I don't believe that villain would be educated enough as well as sick enough to pull off a big bluff in this spot so I like your fold, were definitely beat here more times than not.

Cheers, Chris.
