      Hello zhengjohn,

      Well, I wouldn't make it pot size on river. :P Although as you do then you pretty much committed yourself. He may easily even ship the river with AK as well. Doubt that we are getting it away vs his play. Plus of course he may even have worse 2pairs. Not that many hands are in his calling range anyways here which beat us.

      Best regards.

      Thank you Veriz!

      Even if I bet 3/4 of the pot, which is about $7, I still fell committed because I only have about $10 left and the pot is already $24. I made the pot size bet just hoping he can call me with any two pairs or tri 2s. He shows pocket 7s.
