Quite funny against an unknown I see something in the chat window and think why?

This is the river bet from the villain who says "go for it" then "dare you".

Well for HA purposes I should fold this hand due to table banter or maybe not what do you guys think?

Maybe a bit of reverse psychology?

Don't know how to do the hidden text so here is the long version. Raw #HHfile with the "table taunts" a red rag to a bull maybe?

I think any tell of intimidation usually shows weakness rather than strength.
But tells are subjective and may differ a lot, so you can't really know for sure.
I am also calling river.

I a vacuum you can surely bluffcatch river as he can have or and it's dubious for him to pot with a naked ace on the river when the board is so scary. Especially given that he defended his BB he can have a wider than usual range for caling pre.

Reading too much into online tells is dangerous but I do go with stuff like timing and sizing. However in my experience people who take the time and guts to type sth in chat will have it more often than not. Then again, these tells can go in both directions so it's tough to put anything into it. I would probably go more with the timing it took him to make his turn and riverbets and make my decision based on this.
