Villain is unknown. He sat down at the table about an hour ago and I haven't seen him get involved in many hands. He is not sporting a grinder outfit and has an average recreational player look. He also bought in for a modest stack at around 125BB where as the average is well over 200BB.

Hero bets 10$
Perhaps slightly optimistic? I was expecting calls from 7's, flush draws and straight draws to get value.
Villain calls 10$
Hero bets 40
Villain raises to 110
My thoughts are that our opponent could have made a flush and is going for thin value or could have a A9+. I discounted the chances of him having a bigger full house since he did not bet the flop nor did he raise the turn.
On the other hand since he is probably a recreational player maybe we cannot apply this logic? Maybe because he is recreational he could turn up with a weirdly played A5 or A7?
Thanks for looking.
