      maybe you could barrel the river, good card to fire

      still while he has that high WTS he's probably not folding any PP so checking behind should still be better, most hands that are folding you beat with A high anyway

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Not against that kind of opponent who is going to showdowns ~41% of the cases. :D I wouldn't even CBet the flop but rather just Check behind. No point. He is going to continue most of his range.

      Best regards.

      I was thinking about this, the only real reason is for value as he may call with weaker?

      If I had a bit stronger Ax hand then why not but with A6 it's pretty thin. If we put the opponent on some kind of range then it's pretty thin value. :) Rather avoid such spots with those stations. Myself the only reason I would see betting here is that we have couple of backdoors.
