      I don't understand checking the river when you finally have a hand. I would have cbet the flop and then given up.

      Hello riskcore,

      Well, while being against a station-like guy I'd rather just Check it on turn and most likely give it up. We can't even be sure that he is folding nay weaker PPs/pairs.

      As played definitely bet the river, most of the time he might just Check it behind even with his TP. And which we don't want to, guess even shipping would be better or either way just making a normal bet.

      Best regards.

      thx for replies guys,

      is it always bad to check on river when you have hand? I thought feigning weakness on the river make it look like a bluff gone bad ( which it was, until the river hit) would get more value, as he was very likely to have a good hand after calling 2 bets, or is this always a bad move and rarely done???

      Well, they ain't gonna bluff that often in those spots. Not on those stakes. People are rather passive there.
