      How would you play river ? If he raised me it´s a fold - I don´t beat anything, but can he call with worse ?

      Another question - am I not commiting myself with that large bet on the river ?

      Hello acceleration123,

      That's exactly the problem with river bet, I'd rather do it like $1,20 or something similar and fold to a raise. And yes, he could still Call with worse hands but I don't like that huge bet against which he might even be less likely to Call with any weaker pair.

      Best regards.
