Sure, you'll see missed spades or chop with a worse A once in awhile.

I bet he had a Q, but was too affraid to be aggressive with it on the 2 flush, 2 overcard board. What was the result of this hand? Probably had A-rag though.

Yeah, pretty easy call. If he had a weak ace, then he's chopping with you. If he had a Q, then I pay that off, but I totally expect to either win here enough for this to be a profitable call.

These strange river donks are so often a last deperate effort to win the pot with a busted flush draw that you should call down.

Oh... and to answer the question (considering I neglected to do so) I'd make that call.

You almost always just lost this hand. That said, I call without thinking about it.

Such an easy call!

If (s)he calls you down with a queen, the call would not pay back the major mistakes he made before.
There is no draw at all - except the two-queen outer. There is no made hand. Except JT having a straight. But that would have been such a bad play what brings us to the major question: What was your opponent like?

If he was tappy but you dont know if tricky: easy call.
If he was taggy: easy raise. No tag would call down this flop with bottom pair. And besides: no TAG would call down this board with two pair as well.
If he was fishy: easy call. As mentioned above, some people just try to steal when they had a ragged draw.

call is not only justified, but correct 100% of the time. those boys will steal a hot stove if you let them. 1/2 on the net is no place to make judgement laydowns.
