Hi adi

This solely depends on villains player type. If he's the sort of guy to raise top pair for 'protection' in this spot then of course we ought to reraise but I'm assuming we don't have enough information on him to know that so I'd call and I'd call with the intention of calling most turns and reassess if he bets the river.

He can have 10x hands and draws but he could have spiked a set so for that reason I'd be inclined to play the hand passively.

Cheers, Chris.
