sick. i think i'm folding. seems like he has either AQ or maybe even 1010 or J10. KJ and JJ is likely too but it would be very dumb of him to try to slowplay the turn. very tough for you to call actually.. bets abt 3/5th of the pot.. but with info abt him steaming, trying to outplay you, i guess you could make an argument for calling.. but i'd definitely lean more towards folding. should have probably put the money in on earlier streets.

my two cents.

Without a good read I would usually fold on this spot as his bet is screaming that he drew out on you.
AQ is a long shot so probably something like him hitting the ten of hearts as his 2nd pair is more likely

Chances of him slow playing a set against you also low unless he is super tricky to bet the flop and check the turn

The river is also a bad bluffing card, villains would more likely bluff if the river dropped an Ace or pairs the K or J to represent trips or something really strong

Overall I would definitely fold unless he is a loosey goosey maniac hahaha

I called because he was ultra steamed after I stacked him twice. He flipped over A2 lol.

i fold . cos he re-raise, mean he got top pair or AK, what more is that flop deal are all top card, J K etc.

so why risk. move on to next game. :)
