      Hi,

      is it fine to bet for value with middle pair against calling station? His range is too big, I think I am ahead most of the time and he is also capable of calling with worst.

      Thanks

      Hey,

      I think check/calling the River is much more better than betting yourself for thinvalue. You give him the chance to bluff on the river with his busted flushdraw or whatever he has

      Best regards,
