      Well, 2/3 pot is a fine value raise. He bet 4 bucks into a 6.50 pot, which is less than 2/3 of the pot, so presumably he was shoving for value, hoping to get his stack in.

      With that said, I'd put him all-in on the river myself, making the same bet he made. I'm a full-ring player though: I'm just giving my opinion so that I can see how my thinking differs from the judge :) I wouldn't fold this though.

      Hello alexgrapid,

      Basically you are more often here against nuts which doesn't want you to Check behind on river. And I don't really find a Call here, therefore it's a fold for me on river.

      Best regards.
