      BB is a huge fish, and rest of the table pretty nitty too, so wanted to play as many hands as possible vs him IP

      79/21/3.3 aggression over 69 hands. wts 50%, w$sd 20%

      Pretty sure I'm ahead flop and turn, because his calling range is so wide, seen him call with pretty much any 2.

      Was trying to decide on river whether to check behind, since I probably won't get much value from worse hands, and the FD and sd is now complete

      But, I've seen him call with ace high, tp, mp, anything really.

      So thought a value bet would be best... But, can I make the call knowing his w$sd is so bad? Or should I just make an unhappy fold and think I should have checked behind?

      villian showed me his cards after


      (also hope it's ok to be posting so many hands again!)

      Hello Jim4rdo,

      Post as many as you want. :) Anything is welcome.

      About the hand the problem on river is that there ain't that many hands which didn't complete. :( Most of the hands completed and therefore I'd rather be more inclined to Check it behind and be happy if I even win the pot. Hard to see to get a lot more value on such a board from him, even if it's that drawy.

      Best regards.
