do you call OTR? his line looks super strong to me, x/c all the way to river so i think it's a trap

I would call here. Flop goes X, X. then villain XCs. I see a ton of worse Aces in their range. I think we are good here often enough to make a call here.

Hi guys,

Villain doesn't XC the turn, he's last to act so that action is impossible. He is simply calling our lead.

I think your fold is fine tbh, it seems really unlikely he would wait until the river to raise a medium ace if he were going to raise it. This reeks of a full house to me. If we have doubt, and think he would play A8 and the like in this fashion, then calling would be fine.

I also doubt this is a bluff. A weird bluff is always possible some % of the time, but he had an opportunity to bluff the flop, or bluff raise the turn, and passed them both. So to me it's mostly a matter of will he do this with worse aces enough.
