Hey guys,

So I don't have any reads on this guy. I mean obviously he takes a strong line, but I'm asking about this because if you add some AK, AT, AQ. I don't do that bad equity wise against that range. So just wondering if you think i can bluff catch profitably here or even its possible a bad villain might think he can value bet AK? maybe?

Anyway any feedback would be great.

Considering the villain overshoves 8.96 into 6.61 on the river, I think we can fold.

Having said that, how much do we have left? do we have less than a PSB? What was our stack to start? Do you have any reads on this villain? Was this ZOOM or Regular?

Hi Silken,

Without any reads, I don't think we can fold this far up in our range. I mean we would have 22, TT as really the only better hands in our range, and we have a lot of 1 pair hands we would be fine to fold vs. a shove. If we had a read the villain was a nit or something then we can find an exploitative fold, but absent any reads (which you say we don't have), I think folding everything up to top 2 pair is going to have us folding with way too high a frequency as without the read we can't rule out AT, QT, AK and the like.... villain can be doing some weird and/or bad things and we just own ourselves folding with this high a frequency.
