      I would probably do the same but it doesn't mean it's correct :) Nice hand.

      Hello parry,

      Since the pot is too big on river then I'd also prefer to just Check behind, we often might even see him having an 6x here which he was drawing with. But against some calling station you might even consider betting like $1.50, we still can get Called by a lot worse and if he decides to raise then we have an easy fold.

      Best regards.
