      Hey,

      To start with I thought this guy may have aces, but then on the turn card I didn't believe that at all and thought I was still quite in the lead.

      Wondering about the river card, I only called just in case of a better hand which in this case I suppose was the right thing, but should I have folded it before then, or just not called river?

      Thanks!

      Hello Jim4rdo,

      Since there aren't that many value-hands from which you get value, I might even prefer Checking behind on flop and let him bluff with some hands, like worse pairs and so on. Otherwise not much wrong by Calling there you could easily be ahead even. Rather think that he would bet with Ax type of hand a lot bigger.

      Best regards.
