      You mean calling the river, right?

      You have to invest $2 to win $7. So you have to win 1/3 of the times. Lets say he only c/r the river with 2pair and sets, obv you have to fold. Is he capable of turning like AJ, AT into a bluff? Then you could consider calling.

      I wouldn't call the c/r, but only because I would checkbehind the river. I don't see any value in betting the river. Can't imagine a worst hand to call.

      Hi,


      I would bet bigger all the way, mostly because on the flop Qx/Ax/gutshots/5x probably aren't folding anyway while the rest will fold to any bet, on the turn Qx might fold to a big bet but Ax never will so I'd go for bigger anyway, same kind of deal for the river.

      As played on the river I would still fold, but I would feel a lot better if we hadn't made such a weak looking bet with no idea whether it could induce our opponent to spazz bluff raise or not.

      @Jab714: you sure you're talking about the right hand here? I see so many things that don't make sense in your post it's disturbing.


      Hope it helps.
