      my question is about river. This reg lost a stack just a few hands before against me and he looks quite frustruated, so I tried to take an advantage from that..but he is folding so much OTR and his range will be probably some pot-controlled 88-TT, so is it better in that spot to bet smaller to induce him/get value from midpairs, or shove it to reprezent busted draw/induce some crying hero call? How do I maximize value in these spots? (he was thinking like it was obv how much he wants his money back and persuaded himself to make a herocall with some TT :f_biggrin: )

      I think he could have a pair amount of Broadway hands that could hit this board like JQ TK AJ etc and we can get value from him on the river by betting something like 7-8 dollars.

      Over bet shove is pretty scary and you might have just scared off AJ or TK. I don't think a hand like 88 99 would call you here. If he was tilty I think he would more probably call 88 to a smaller bet than a bigger one.

      Different people have different types of tilt. Some might turn aggressive while some play wider or call wider. I think his form might be calling wider if any, if he was aggressive tilty he would probably have raised flop or turn.
