      River: ($9.18) 5:diamond: (2 players)

      Final Pot: $9.18

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      MP3 shows (Qh Jc)
      Hero shows a pair of aces (As Ac)

      Hero wins with a pair of aces (As Ac)

      Is it ok to c/r here?

      I did so with the thinking that many hands will fold to a cbet that would have an attempt to bluff at a large pot. Also opponent may feel I have Ax and I've missed flop.

      Hello Jeffers16,

      Usually our plan with Check/Raise is if we have big stacks and can't get his whole stack by river. This time we could easily get it and therefore I'd play just Bet/Bet/Bet against him and hope that he has the J. Or maybe he could even Call us with worse PPs but against that kind of Check/Raise he would easily fold them.

      Best regards.
