      He is a very loose player. His range for defending the blinds is quite wide in my opinion. Is the betting ok? Can I fold the river?

      Hello yaxkukmian,

      Flop: Yeah, I'd definitely bet against such an opponent with our TP+GS.
      Turn: Bet for value here and might be even protection from FD or something similar.
      River: Can't really give it up, he could sometimes here shove with even just sets or maybe also has Ax, just unlucky if he has there 6x. Nice hand! Had the 6x?

      Best regards.

      Tnx. I was just asking because I really don't think I could fold this hand against anyone (bu against sb).

      He had A6.

      You are welcome. Yeah, it's kinda hard to fold such hands on NL2. :( And such situations just happen, just don't get tilted of it. That's the main thing.
