Small sample-size notwitchstanding, a 9/5 guy that flatted in the CO is gonna have a set/boat here pretty often. I doubt he calls pre with AJ unless suited, and that beats you anyway. When auto-piloting and not checking HUD pop-ups, I'd snap call the river with KJ/AJ, but with a vague read like this, I think it's a puke-fold. At worst, I think he's showing up with , but there's 6 combos of 44 and 22 out there too.

Yeah Arty, I agree, not sure though if it’s puke-fold or just standard fold.

So, if we open a little bit his range and give him AJ and KJ OTR because I played so passively:
AJ(4), KJ(2),4(6),2(6)

If I would have AJ, let say he would bet KJ -> he would have AJ(2), KJ(4),4(6),2(6) because you need to give 10% air every time, lets give him QJ(2) -> making it (6) to win and (12) to lose =)

Even with AJ we are underdogs, unfortunately I don’t know how to calculate EV

Hey Brave,

I doubt this raise turn/river overbet is too many worse hands, 44/22 a lot tbh. I wouldn't pay much attention to the stats on this sample, but I think the line looks super strong, and for the times he may be overplaying QJ there's more he's got AJ/22/44
