10 hands (less than 2 orbits) are meaningless.

So what will a 5NL player who cold calls an EP raise then massively over raises to a weak c-bet likely to be holding?

Hi eaSy,

I agree with birdayy, shove. The villain seems fishy based on all the info we have, and the bad raise sizing decreases the likelihood of a set imo. Regardless our hand should have good equity vs. an aggro-fishes range here, and in great shape if sets aren't in the equation. We're a favorite over many 1 pair hands and he can have a dominated draw sometimes too. His raise sizing has priced calling out of the consideration, but we can still shove profitably with our hand equity, plus some fold equity (when he was being stupid, he may surprise us sometimes and muck).
