      I wouldn't call the river here, any ace as well as flush draws on the flop beat you. You could double barrel turn vs. some opponents if you think they can fold a weak ace, while at the same time charging for the FD, and this way you get cheap showdown.

      Hello redwarf01,

      Don't really see what kind of hands you beat on river? Couple draws completed and Ax is possible as well. I'd rather give it up and fold.

      Best regards.
