Big $2.20. Bubble has burst.

Villain was playing 42/13 over 53 hands, and had quite a high postflop aggression factor (percentage was over 43%).

The entire table had a history of donking out for the minimum, which was exploitable tonight. I have top set, but the board is all diamonds. I'm pretty sure my flop raise was correct, but seeing further aggression on the turn, and the fact I would be down to about 6bb if I lost, was my call of the shove on the turn correct? Please note that I did tank-call this.

Hi Christxof

I love the way you played the hand and I can't see a single fault. Villain 6's range is crammed full of flush draws and perhaps a naked straight draw. I wouldn't expect your typical villain to get it in here without a fairly good amount of equity but even so we must call the shove on the turn. I would snap call all day long. He may even have a lower set, and in this spot against a massive fish it would be a crime to consider folding to his shove on the turn

Nice hand, Chris.
