      Hello Alficor1,

      I'd say bet smaller on river, ~$2.50 or something similar, as played and as we bet pot size bet and he still is raising us I expect very often to have a very strong hand against us. Could easily be even straight, more often I think it's at least set. Therefore when betting that big and he still raising us, I'd prefer to Bet/Fold in that case.

      Best regards.
