      Results follow (highlight to see):

      Is it OK to check behind like this or should I have bet for value?

      Hello Elertar,

      Not much you can do there on river. :( A lot of 2pair combos/sets are possible and of course even some draws completed. No value anymore. Nice hand! Doubt that he would Call there anyways with a lot worse.

      Best regards.
