      Bet the river halfpot.

      He's not raising you with worse, and you can set the price for a showdown.

      Rest is fine (although an argument can be made for not raising pre).

      I agree with falcone1983. My only comment would be to cb a little more. Like $1.50 at least - the amount we'd bet with AK ;)

      Hello franeczek,

      Preflop: Actually I'd rather just Check it just for the given reason that we are against unknown and since he is going to Call us with a very wide range anyway, and we will never know where we stand postflop, when we even CBet it and he Calls us (The flop is missed for us for example). Otherwise when we just Check it then we could likely donk proper flops and often even take it down.

      As played
      Postflop: When you planning to Call the river anyways, then I'd rather just Block-bet myself against unknown. Vs known maniac we could consider your line. Block-bet doesn't have to be that big, as mentioned $1,50 should do it.

      Best regards.
