      Should I have folded on the River since there was a pair there? I had him on a nut flush... but couldn't fold to that?

      Hello samlar,

      Turn: I would likely bet a bit bigger here, ~$0.80 or something similar to get value from hands like Kx or maybe even 1card FD.
      River: It's very close, it a lot depends on the opponent, which have we seen him in early hands. But I often expect him to have a very strong hand here since we have shown 2 streets of aggression and now he pots into us, so therefore fold should be better. Against some spewy guy who is overaggressive we could consider here Calling but for that we need stats and read but that's not the case at the moment.

      Best regards.
