      --- I was wondering about my check on the river here? I suspected that since he called both my bets he had Kx, possible KQ, KJ or KT, and didn't want to give him any free money if he had KQ here. He seems a fairly tight player so I suspect he was on tilt or something here, can't see any other reason behind his play.

      Hello Royaltramp,

      I'd just shove for value on river, his stats don't seem to be that tight. Also if you take into account his WTS, you see that he is going to showdown very often, could easily have a lot worse hands, and I expect him to bet himself on river if he has there KQ.

      Best regards.

      That's a good point, I didn't notice looking back at the hand that he had diamonds.

      Also, thanks for the evaluation, yeah, I was thinking since he was loose maybe I could just shove, but wasn't sure.
