      I check behind because I think it is a very dangerous board.

      Should I bet on river ?

      Hello newsat,

      Bet bigger on turn, ~$0,80 or sometimes even bigger, otherwise seems to be fine. Although there are a lot worse which may us still Call, therefore I might even sometimes consider Betting for value there, depending on the opponent.

      Best regards.
