Hey Justinovskis.

I'm interested in what has made you classify the villain as a "recreational player"? It's a fairly specific read.

To be more specific - loose-passive, running 30/0. Playing one table.

Hi Justin,

Yes, this is a fold, it's critical to make folds like these... once you get your head around being able to fold AA/KK post flop you'll come to find a spot like this to be an easy laydown.

Super passive recreational players taking a very aggressive flop action in a 3 way pot always have 1 pair crushed.
