It is. It's going to be 97o more often than you can imagine. Not kidding. I'm not folding anywhere ever.
Check/call turn, check/call river. If he's not bluffing
, then what exactly does he have? 22? AA? KK? AK? A2, or some other trips? If he had a hand like AK, AA or KK preflop, he's a compulsive slowplayer, because that's what it takes to limp/call with AA and KK preflop. A compulsive slowplayer doesn't overbet the nuts on the turn. If he has trips, much of the same argument applies; he clearly saw fit to slowplay the flop, why is he trying to push you off on the turn?
I can't fold this, no sir.
