So whilst tilting I made an unorthodox play in the BB and defended light with A6o. I float twice and he overbet jams the river. What does he have here? Total airball?

Not sure why you're floating here... What was your plan OTT/OTR? I think your best play OTT would have been to raise in order to rep pocket 2s or pocket 5s...

IMO you didn't have a plan for this hand and by the time we get to the river it's too late.

FWIW, I would have 3bet preflop.

Yeah to be honest I was tilting like mad and I know it made literally no sense. Was just curious as to what he overbets with.

The defend pre against a minopen is certainly fine, the float OTF is close to probably not very good as our hand is only ace high and can't really improve much against his slightly better hands. We may even lose the showdown to better A high unless we turn our hand into a bluff on later streets (which without much equity and on a dry board seems like a bad premise).

OTR he could be looking for either some herofolds or herocalls from Jx when he holds a very strong hand given that he doesn't represent much. Tough to say but folding without knowing some of his tendencies is surely best now, and folding the flop should be the standard for me too.
