Unknown villain.



I'm just really unsure of the line this villain took and if this could be a bluff. This session I had already called off, in two spots, massive river bets that made no sense and both time my monster had been sucked out on. This spot is obviously a lot thinner so I folded but I couldn't really put the villain on a hand that made much sense except maybe a slow played set on the flop?

All thoughts appreciated

Hey Fadyen,

first off I'd usually prefer squeezeing pre over flatting, especially if one or more of the two villains involved are recreational players. Calling is fine ofc.

I would also bet/fold the river as I expect weaker aces to almost always just call. That leaves us with better hands and maybe bluffs, but given that the only real draws that busted might be a hand like QT or KT I don't see villain holding a lot of hands he would need to bluff with. Also given that it was a multiway pot and villain didn't stab earlier when he had the chance I would pretty much rule out a lot of bluffs here.
