I the turn is an instafold. He's betting into 3 players on the most draw heavy board possible, which means he has to have something, and there are still two people behind you.

I...

1) Don't see how you can fold
2) Don't see how he's showing you a hand you're beating

Somehow that makes sense to me...

If Scotty has had more than two beers snap call if not turbo fold.

Yes, including how sober he was (entirely to my knowledge) would actually be an important piece of information.

The sick part is from watching him on TV he's not incapable of putting me on a draw on this board and having a weak hand/draw himself and pulling something like this, even though at that point he hadn't done anything really out of line.

IMO this is obv a fold/call situation.

Super nice/fun guy though. Also, his pre flop is surprisingly bad.

One thing I've noticed about live players is when they think you are bluffing, they don't call. They raise.

This is sort of hilarious and may or may not be true for Scotty, but its just worth noting that they dont understand that when we have polarized river ranges (or at least they think we do), they should call with marginal hands rather than raise to make us fold our bluffs.

Edit: Yes i'm being a stereotyping [censored]. Yes, this probably isn't true of Scotty.

Problem with that is that he's the PFR, he's probably not checking anything again on the turn (Bond's telling us that the two guys behind him are folding), we're in position. I mean, if we're not calling there, after that action, why are we calling pre? I don't know how the guy plays but he's not checking only the flops he wallops.
