      Hi,


      Even tho the sample is small, 26/4 players usually the ones you can count on when it comes to bluff busted draws on the river. In that particular case, even if he's bluffing with whiffed gutshots JT/J9/T9, he'll have a bunch of flushes in his range as well that will own you.

      I actually prefer focusing on getting value out of the Qx/floated Ax part of his range when in doubt, so I'm bet/folding around $1 there the first time around.


      Hope it helps.
