      Hi. Villain is unknown. I called flop to reevaluate at turn. I was ready to fold turn but since he checked turn too I thought I could make a thin value bet against his weak one pair hands. Or better to try bluffcatch for a busted spade draw? Thanks:)

      Hey,
      If u are going to call the flop and fold to turn bet, then i like to just fold on the flop. But as played, u should bet bigger on the river if u even bet. Bet big and he could fold some two pair hands.

      Thank you for your help, kevvu. How much you suggest to bet on river? Like 10 or more?

      Overbet or around pot size should do the trick. He never ever has a straight when he checks turn IP. So we want him to fold most likely better hand than ours.

      He is not folding there two pair hands, so I don´t really like betting big on the river. I think small blocking bet is fine, he may sometimes call with worse one pair hands and fold his draws.
      b/c flop with aces is fine. If board was a little dryer then you can also bet/3-bet since if he is min-raising with top pair hands he would also call 3-bet and you can play for stacks expecting to be ahead very often
