      Final Pot: $3.81

      Only beating the A4, A5 here. with kickers playing is the river bet too thin? Or are we getting called enough my Kx to get value?

      If we don't have 3 streets would it be better to check back turn induce bluffs or give an easier value bet on river given dry board, or just bet turn check back river.

      Hello CheckBop,

      I'd most likely just Check behind the turn and Bet the river. You ain't gonna get much value from a lot of draws there anyways. And with your kicker you can't go for 3street value either. Or do you expect him that often to Call you down with Kx?

      Best regards.

      I'm really not sure, I wouldn't be surprised if he showed up with KQ KJ here but I think check back turn is probably best. Fwiw he had A5 which doesn't tell us much .
