      Hello!
      I didn't like river but I thought he couldn't call me 2 streets with ace high, according to his stats at least ... so I put my last chips in the pot. Most of the time I'm checking behind and losing potential value :/

      I would bet all-in on the turn. I see no reason to leave a little residue in the stack on the river.

      +1

      You already lose value when you don't just shove turn with less then potsize left.

      As played, I would prefer to just check back river because that A on the river is also a scarecard for the villain and will for this reason less likely pay you off with Tx or some PP but always call you with like AT, AQ etc.

      Best regards,

      Because I noticed not many players call my potsized bets on the turn, unless they got a monster.
