      Hey :]

      What are your thoughts on this?

      Personally, I think he had a FD and the overbet on the river was to scare me off, but the river card could have been in his range, or part of his flush draw.

      Stats were 18/11/1.0

      Thanks dude

      I prefer to check back on the turn here even though its a double flush draw board. Your hand isnt THAT strong and if he's going to donk bluff the river when he misses after calling the turn, hes DEFINITELY bluffing the river with a missed draw after you check-back the turn, and its a lot easier to call.

      As played he can easily show up with KJ (or some other 2pair) here I think but its really difficult to call the river after betting the turn.

      Hope Veriz agrees!

      Hello Jim4rdo,

      That's why usually betting the turn is better to get a free showdown since those kind of guys wont just bet with pure air there anyways and I don't even expect that passive guy bet that way with missed draws. Therefore I'd say nice hand, we still get value from any worse Jx and of course draws.

      Best regards.
