      villain 22/16/2 wts 28, 1k hs
      villain is losing $15k after 300k hs.

      I am normally checking rivers like this for induction (i.e. when the main obvious draws missed). Am I better off betting something, and if so, how much?

      What hands am I trying to get called by (KQ/QJ obv, but can I expect villain to call with worse underpairs or 6x/7x hands he had on the flop?)

      I prefer 8.50 on the turn.

      I like betting these rivers small, since not everyone bets their missed draws, you give him a chance to be a Hero with TT or w/e, and very few people will bluffshove over a small bet.

      But there's a lot of ways to play this, the more you know about your opponent the better decions you can make.

      Hello Tim64,

      Turn: Against such a big loser and big WTS you can even bet bigger her, as mentioned $8-9.

      As played
      River: I totally agree with your thoughts, I also sometimes play Check/Call here against some kind of aggressor who like to bet their missed draws but in this situation having such a big loser with us and his WTS is pretty big, I'd often bet myself for value, he can still Call us with a lot of PPs, weaker pairs, and sometimes even with Qx type of hand. I'd bet like $10.

      Best regards.
