      checked here because I didn't want to bet into a straight

      if I do bet on the river here, I only get called by hands that beat me anyway right?

      Hello Yeodan,

      Basically you can even bet smallish on river like 1/2 pot. But if we are against reasonable player then Checking behind should be fine as well.

      Best regards.
