Villain is 87/0/0 over 134 hands, fold to cbet 34%. Worth calling and folding to a river bet? He might be doing this with a draw. Havent seen him be aggressive thus far though.

If you think he's capable of having draws in his range here then I'd just jam over the top.

What's his aggression factor? Has he c/raised before this and if so have you seen a showdown?

If he's not aggressive then you can safely fold your hand here. If he's a typical loose passive type then he'll just call down with all the hands you have crushed. When he raises alarm bells would be ringing for me as these types of players don't raise draws generally, they raise very strong hands. Would expect to see a straight here almost always.

There are other loose players who will c/raise a ton of boards with all kinds of junk but as you said if he hasn't been aggresive then easy fold.

Hi pocket,

Never, ever call a turn check-raise from an 87/0 with 1 pair. He's got a straight on this board like all the time.
