      I read an article about not value betting weak made hands enough on the river, I realise this is a pretty small river bet, one that is probably easily raised, but against such a fish, 84/15, I thought id try something small.

      Hello joeldowey123,

      Just Check/Fold the turn, ain't worth anymore betting. And you are against a station and of course are in freeplay pot where you just over-value your hand. This ain't a spot there you should pick the thin value. :D

      Best regards.
