      Hello dleach1991,

      Welcome to the NL BSS Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future. I hope that with our help you can improve your play and as well move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      The problem is that there ain't that many worse hands which Call you on river. He is even such a player who rather tries to win on showdowns. W$SD = 57. So therefore I'd really rather be inclined to just Check/Fold the river.

      Also you don't have to make exactly pot size on both streets, you are just revealing your hand and also can't balance your bluffs this way.

      Best regards.
