Villain steal range 42%, 26/19/9.3 and af of 1.7 over 60 hands, no read. Not sure if he will check raise a draw here, he might have done this with a 2 pair but I would expect a bet for protection. Bit of a puzzle, I think maybe he had QJ, see a check raise as a very strange move on this board texture. as all made hands should be betting.

Hi pockettones,

I think we have a clear fold here readless. BvB people do crazy things sometimes but with this board texture and the action I think TPTK will seldom be good enough to call. If we look at it from villain's eyes they bet flop and we called and we bet turn when they checked on a coordinated board; that did not deter them from putting in a raise and I think that fact makes it look super strong. I believe we would have have better hands to call their raise like 2pair+, pair + draw, etc. that it makes folding TP very reasonable.

Good fold imo.
