      Hello swanny36,

      Shouldn't be like a very big problem to Check behind on turn if you don't want to go for 3 streets value. But now again there are just so many hands which may pay you like any Ax hand, any 1card FD type of hand which maybe had a GS on flop or even double-GS. Plus we can easily bet it for free showdown to avoid him making such a bet on river like this.

      As played on river it really comes to the opponent, if he rather is passive guy then I rarely doubt that he turn his hand into bluff like this here. Even don't think that he would bet with Ax this way.

      Best regards.
