      Hello redwarf01,

      Bet/Fold the river yourself like for $1. But as played I guess I'd make the crying fold, I just don't see many hands what we beat there, like any 6x beats us, backdoor flushdraw beats us and there are just so many 2pair type of hands as well. Rather Bet/Fold yourself, which is likely better while we still get value from hands like Tx which he likely would Check behind and when he has a lot stronger hand then we have an easy fold.

      Best regards.
