    A few times lately I have over called on the river and spewed chips as a result. It's usually a situation where I am betting the best hand OOP and someone calls to the river and spikes their flush vs my nut straight, or like in the below example, they spike their kicker to fill up when I've got the nut flush on the turn. I hate paying off in these spots.

    In the below case, I have 75 hands of history with villain, HM2 player HUD shows him to be pretty solid. 25/15/22.0/6.5 loose aggressive. Would the below hand be easy to get away from for some? It just seems to be happening to me more lately and I need to stop calling in those spots, but on the other hand, I don't want to always fold and create an exploitable spot for someone observant, especially if I'm holding the nut flush or some other strong hand. I know it's a leak that I need to focus on, but I don't want to go too far. Though the only thing I can really beat here is a Queen high flush.

    I apologize in advance if I was supposed to use a hand converter or some other format here. I'll gladly edit and change it if someone wishes to correct me :)

    EDIT: I found this CT converter, but it doesn't seem to do anything

    If he's going to try to bluff you out of this hand, he would have bet the turn.
    If he has a made hand that you beat, he's not raising with it.
    Therefore, if he's raising you're beat

    P.S. if those stats are from 6-max tables, he's not loose.

    Sound advice, thanks.

    HM2 tagged him as loose aggressive.
