      Do you think it's wise if I raise the river or even shove it off?

      Hello cpers,

      Preflop: Don't even recommend raising such small SCs since you can't hit much with them and usually against calling stations will have hard time to make the hand very profitable.

      As played
      Postflop: I'd bet a bit bigger on flop ~$0,10 rather than very smallish. If you make it look like this then you are just telling what you have in the hand and what did help you. Like you did bet small on flop and big on turn = huge hand on turn. Also I'd rather Bet/Fold the river than Check/Call or Check/Shove, we don't beat much against that kind of overbet there and we practically don't want to see such an overbet. He will most of the time just Check behind his weaker holdings.

      Best regards.
