      Results follow (highlight to see):
      CO shows two-pair, kings and nines (Kh Kd)
      Hero shows (Js Jd)

      CO wins with two-pair, kings and nines (Kh Kd)

      My river bet is thin here and I hope to get called by pocket pairs 66-88. Possibly not the best spot though? Not sure what the alternative is, I think check/fold is too weak and I hate to check call here unless I know that the player is capable of bluffing. Also, will almost always bet more than my bet size with both bluffs AND hands that beat me.

      Hello Meemawuk,

      I wouldn't really say that it's off-play here. I would very likely bet the river as well while we might get called by worse, sometimes even leveled A high card plus we protect from him making some bigger bet. Although when he even does a bigger bet then we most likely can fold the hand since we wont beat much. So therefore overall it really comes to the reads you have on him.

      Best regards.
