Yeah, I agree. With top 2 we're always calling.
Now time for the the honest reason I posted this hand. I'm not the BB here. I'm the SB and I hold ... 55. I know it's just FPS spew but when he raised the turn I knew I was screwed so I planned then to call the ch/r and pot the river, any river. He hadn't yet folded to a cbet in 4 opportunities so his flop call really meant very little.
I figured he'd fold his TP hands to the river bet and if the people ITT are any indication I guess this would be true most of the time. Not sure how often he raises the turn with only a single pair though so the point may be moot. Fwiw he timed down before calling the river but I don't see how almost anyone folds top two here.
