      Do you vraise this river or just take the cheap showdown?
      @Turn feels like KJ against which I call down, but when he underbets the river, I'm thinking "oh, I guess he just has trips and I can valueraise vs worse kings"

      What I didn't think about though was that if he indeed has KJ, he just made the nuts, no need to vbet/protect hard and I can't have too much to call with so he underbets to get a call from Jx etc and maybe even induce ... which he apparently succeeded in doing.

      if he´d made normal size bet like 12$, would you shove river for value?
      If not then I kind of like how you played it, although I´d definitely would raise river bigger to rep missed spades and I think he won´t also shove then worse hands. Right now I can´t be sure he isn´t turning his AJ into bluff, so if you make small raise I think I´d prefer calling

      Gotcha, I didn't feel too good about my raise sizing either

      Weird hand. Against his tiny bet on R, I think we have to raise for value. I like $15-20 and then I guess we can fold if he shoves, though its kinda gross.

      Doesnt make sense for him to be vbetting so small with a very strong hand...

      As played I think we can still fold since these weird lines often turn out to be monsters. :)
