      Hello acceleration123,

      Wouldn't be surprised to see there Ax while he has some weak kicker. Therefore I do just skip the thin value and take a look with what he did play this way and note him down. Don't really think that he is going to Call that often with 88-JJ.

      And even if I do decide for the value-bet then I'd pick maximum of 1/2 pot.

      Best regards.

      Or worse queen that he can call on the river ... but it´s thin, I should´ve probably taken the showdown for free.

      Yeah, Qx are possible. Although I do sometimes rather skip the thin value but not saying that I am Checking behind when I really know that he is fishy enough to Call. :D
