      it's very similer situation from this ex. http://www.pokerstrategy.com/forum/thread.php?threadid=138989?
      all the time I was ready to fold my hand...
      - C-Bet on the flop- ready to fold if rr...
      - C-Bet on the turn- redy to fold if rr...
      - river... I had on my mind this example with AA... i could have chose: pot control or bet for all...but I remembered this 'There are a still some hands from which you get value from. And those players are very loose anyways on those limits so I wouldn't be surprised if he even Calls with Jx. But I'd definitely bet it smaller if I am betting at all on river.'
      I'm just wondering which play is better... pot control or bet...
      Pot control is very safe option but in long run we will lose money because as you said there are still some hands which we get value from...
      what is funny?... that if my opponent bet on the river I would fold my KK..

      Hello BGawli,

      The problem actually with this hand is that several draws even completed like 89, FD and etc. And therefore sometimes I would even skip the value on river and rather just Check it behind. But of course it's up to your reads how loose the opponent can be. But as we saw him having such a hand then should be doable. :D Nice hand from the opponent. :f_biggrin:

      Best regards.
