Just wanting to check my line on this hand. I was against a Supernova, which I know doesnt mean he is good (Or even competent), but it probably means he is used to grinding at higher levels of cash or Tournaments etc.

I open 56s from the button, the Supernova has a huge 3bet % (34.8) so I am absolutely taking in a flop in position, expecting to miss most of the time.

I flop extremely well, hitting two pair and bet out when he checks to me, his post flop aggression is quite low. Something like 1.2. I lead out on turn and river. He calls turn but shoves river over my lead.

From the minute he 3bet I felt he was going to try and take it away at some point.

I'm behind sets, 55/66 are unlikely because of card removal, but 77/33 is much more possible (Though 33 is maybe a bit hopeful when getting to the river) and he would certainly be 3betting that pre. I'm behind 89o/89s/75o/75s/76s/76o on the flop but I am ahead of a lot of other hands he is in there with.

I absolutely snap-called on the river because I thought at some point he would try and bully me off my hand. This is almost exclusively because of his Supernova status I have to admit but also the 3bet % is insanely high. His aggression is low but it is there.

Should I be folding river?

I'm actually not being fair on myself here. I probably downplayed the amount of influence his extreme pre-flop aggression had on my view of him. His Supernova status did have some influence too though.

I'm not sure I like the call preflop, I'd rather have a bigger SC 98s+ given that our opponent is very aggressive and will put alot of pressure on us. with a hand like 65s we will see alot of overcards and we will be playing for a weak end of the straight or FD. A 34% 3bet is pretty ridiculous, are we sure we have atleast 50 hands on them?

With that, I think we have to call the river. I don't see too many strong hands x/c this flop. So his hand looks like a bluff catcher trying to keep the pot small. AK/AQ, 7x,6x. But then they lead shove river?? Oh wow K6, I'm not sure what they were thinking there but more reason to make the call with 2pair in a 3bet pot after we have invested 35% of our stack.

That's the thing, he couldnt really put all that much pressure on me really, if I totally missed the flop I am going to check/fold a decent amount of the time. If I smashed the flop in the way that I did (I know it wasnt the actual nuts I had but I considered it to be almost the nuts given his range) I was happy to get the money in unless there was a ridiculous board run out.

I guess what I am saying is that the hand was probably high variance but that I was happy to accept that given how the session had gone (That shouldnt always matter but I felt I was reading the action pretty well in order for the session to have gone well).

Against a lot of players I will be folding the hand pre.

I have 61 hands on him BTW. Still a small sample but more than enough to show that he was being aggro pre-flop to a stupid extent.
