1/3 -- 3! Pot TP vs 2X Shove

Villain is new to me, young Asian guy w/ a reg-like table-stance, sitting on a big stack, & after about 45-60 minutes of play has been fairly active preflop (opened $15 over 2 EP limps in EP3 w/ QJo, etc.), but no real read on postflop freq/patterns. Regardless I figured he'd at least have a semi aggressive game post & be prone to hero folding generally pre/post, thus my 3! pre & my flop check -- perhaps an ambitious read. /shrug. Once he overshoves, it sucks, but SPR @ 2 still dictates a call here, no? On the other hand this board is super dry, the bet is polarizing, & not sure what we beat here. Stacks are 110BBe. Thanks for feedback.

Hero (SB $330): Qh Tc

Fold x 3, MP1 calls $3, fold x 3, V (BTN) raises $15, Hero 3! to $65, fold x 2, V calls

Flop ($136): Th 7s 4d

Hero x, V bets all-in $265, Hero ???

    I call pretty quickly. If he does this with JJ then good for him. I think you'll see air trying to push you off AQ/AK quite often.

    Well, I think we have to give him JJ-QQ, sets, and open enders like 98s or 65s, and sometime JTs/T9s. I don't think our equity is too hot here, and I don't see people spazzing with AK/AQ enough of the time to include many combos of it, but I'm with you in that my plan was to xc, but this was unusual sizing.

    I’m with crushlivedegens on snap calling. I think you are more likely to run into KT or AT then jj/qq, but I think villains sizing is doesn’t indicate he is at the top of his range.

    He has an over pair here usually. Or a set. This is never a bluff from first look.

    We should bet fold IMO if we are not sure and we can c/f with some but that's probably too tight. Bet fold.

    We have a checking range here on dry flops on 3! Pots. Villain should know we don't bet AA a lot and we check back more than AK.

    Pre is a big leak IMO. I fold. We have a weak hand in SB with players yet to act in a bloated pot make QTo a snap muck. I get he is opening wide, but we don't know if he has a fold button. If we were much deeper (min 200bb+), I can get behind 3! QT suited at some frequency.

    AP, call, not loving it but folding on a fairly wet board with TP isn't an option. We induced the spazz, now call it off.
