      UTG1 calls $0.10, 2 folds, MP2 calls $0.10, 4 folds, Hero raises to $0.50, UTG1 folds, MP2 calls $0.40.

      Hero checks, MP2 bets $5.95, Hero raises to $11.90, MP2 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $12.2.

      Villain is unknown showing strong calling station tendencies 37/0 ove 30 hands. Cbet is standard and turn bet as well it is the river when it gets interesting, I don't see him willing to call a bet with something like 66-TT mb 7x but I hope we just check it down and I win a decent amount of the time, however he almost pushes and I start thinkig. I don't belive he would bet 5 for value for such a big amount in this spot and if he got lucky with two running jacks then I will pay him off so I put him all-in for the remaining 0.05 (half BB) and ... :f_o: .

      a) Was his bet sizing a tell in this situation? He pretty much has J (55) or air in my opinion. :s_confused:

      Hello Steelbrewer,

      If he is unknown player then why do you pick such a line on river. :( I totally dislike it. I'd definitely rather Bet myself the river to get value from a lot of different hands. Even maybe A high. Bet sizes seem to be fine, against a fish could even consider doing it bigger.

      Best regards.
