      Hello chessmaster1234,

      The river is damn cruel actually. But it's definitely very hard to lay it down while he even gives great odds for a Call. If the bet size would be near pot then I'd be inclined even to lay it down. But as played he might even have worse straights/trips and etc type of hands.

      But overall if we take into account his bet sizing pattern it really tells us that he is having a strong hand on river after our flop&turn line. Sometimes I might even consider making the crying fold. :(

      Best regards.
