      I should have bet a bit bigger on all streets, but it probably would not have shaken off this calling station.

      What to do on the river when the A shows up and villain makes such a small bet 1/8 of pot? I feel stupid calling when I'm so obviously beaten, but if he has an A up to like 90% of the time I still have odds to call. Should I have folded this? Is there really less than 10% chance that he is bluffing in such spots?

      Hello member001,

      Preflop: I'd raise it even bigger here for the reason that we are OOP and also there are so many limpers, ~$0,18.

      As played
      Postflop: Yes, I'd likely bet a bit bigger on flop & also turn against that fishy and likely make the crying Call on river for the reason that he is just giving us so great odds, maybe even tries to bluff sometimes.

      Best regards.
