Hi, villain is playing 23/15/3 F3B=60% AF=1.3 over 407 hands.
Notes on him : 'cold call 3B IP=64s'
Weird line by the villain. What range would the villain do this with ? Obviously this board hits his range for calling 3B pre-flop. But it could be a draws, and we would be ahead.

It's a high variance spot, I'd fold most of the times I guess.

Your note gives you some valuable info on his range construction as it looks like he wants to see flops with a lot of suited connectors or one gappers. The shove may weight his range more towards draws and pairs plus draws but as you pointed out these will have a lot of equity against you. Given that you already invested more than $1 into the hand I still feel like calling is best. We could probably get away with calling only QQ+ (as we don't have to fear too many overcard outs) and our higher Flushdraws in this Spot but if we start folding too many Overpairs here we may be in trouble as we will be giving up on equity too much.
