      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      UTG1 (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is UTG1 with A, K.
      Hero raises to $0.17, 3 folds, MP3 calls $0.17, CO calls $0.17, 3 folds, 2 folds, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.58) Q, 7, K (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.40, MP3 folds, CO calls $0.40.

      Turn: ($1.38) 2 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.00, CO calls $1.00.

      River: ($3.38) 6 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $1.06, Hero calls $1.06.

      Final Pot: $5.5.

      Villain's stats: VPIP 49/PFR 19/AF 3.8/WTSD 35

      Flop: Bet for value and protection.

      Turn: Bet for value and protection.

      River: check since flush has completed here. I think his calling range on the turn was: 77, AsQs, KsQs, AsJs, KsJs, QsJs, AsTs, KsTs, QsTs, JsTs, Ts9s, 9s8s, 8s7s, 7s6s, 6s5s, 5s4s, AQo, KTo+ (might be wider since villain has high WTSD and VPIP)

      I called his river bet is because I have the odds to call and his AF and WTSD is very high. (Pls correct me if I'm wrong).

      Hello slashng,

      In this spot when the opponent really has such a WTS then I'd rather block-bet/Fold myself here like $1 than Check/Call it. Mainly you will still get value by worse by just betting yourself and he will just Check behind those and not bet.

      Therefore usually if I do Check the river then it's likely Check/Fold.

      Best regards.
