      Hello... I would like to ask what to do on the river. I put him on straight draw on flop, so probably a ten helped him. Should I call river? I think fold is too weak and with 3-bet I would probably just isolate myself against slow played trips or straight.. Thanks

      Hey JohnDoe1313,

      Well played till the river. On the river I would just shove all-in for value. He can have many worse hands on this board that would pay you off, not just sets and straights. If you just call there with second best 2-pair you lose value against such fishy players.

      Best regards,
