Assuming that's literally true, I'm calling this. Think about it statistically. If he's all in literally every other hand, how often do those hands beat 2 pair? I don't know the exact numbers, but it's well under 50%.
I had a guy do this to me last night. 10nl, I think I had 44 and the flop was 456 rainbow. He shoves for $8 or so, but had been playing SO crazy I just couldn't assime the hands that beat me (23, 37, 55, 66, 78) were a significant part of his range. His range was huge. So I called, knowing this could be One Of Those Times where some nitwit calls a pfr with crap and gets lucky.
He didn't. He had AKo, gave me his stack, and left muttering about what BS it was. This is why wildly aggressive play like that feels good, but is really bad. They push the table around and win a lot of little pots, and get called by hands that crush them. He could have learned I had a hand I was serious about playing with a much smaller bet.
