      - standard call, since your hand is too strong to fold against unknown river donk who can donk out here for value with worse hands

      Hello swanny36,

      Don't ever think that he is going to Bet his weak Jx hands there. So basically only hand we beat there is a bluff. But is he even capable of bluffing here after our line betting flop & turn strong. Rarely doubt that, so therefore myself I'd fold it on river without good information on the opponent.

      Best regards.

      Hi... I borrow this hand to learn "how to put villain on range" and "EV"

      I put villain range on river: JJ,77-66,KcQc,QcJc,JcTc,Tc9c,9c8c,8c7c,7c6c,6c5c,5c4c
      Equilab show us 38.5% Equity, so

      EV to call = 38.5% * ($2.65+$1.80) = $1.71
      This is a slightly -EV to call on river.

      Is this right?

      With your range it's actually +EV Call. :) But overall your range is way too wide, I don't really expect him to make so often such a bluff with all those missed hands.
