      Q: Give up turn to improve on River (think he's slowplaying), correct?

      Hello lukezo,

      Wouldn't say that he is slowplaying. He may easily even bet the river with missed draws and of course with any kind of pair. But most likely folding there is the safest play while we don't know the opponent.

      Best regards.
