      Stats: 30/24/2.1/45, 20% fold to cbet in 189 hands

      I got many reads on this player, he likes to make moves so I knew he'd do something with 100% of his range if I cbetted here (didn't even need to look at his fold to cbet%). He's a very bad player though, I've seen him making some pretty bad plays.
      And most importantly some hands before: I got AQ on a Axx dry flop. He cbets and I raise to make it look like a bluff. He 3bets, I call. He bets turn I call, and check check river. He had JJ. This may have tilted him against me.

      So I CBH the flop with the intent of calling a turn bet.
      On the river almost any broadway beats me, but he'll do this with PPs and SCs too. Also what led me to call was the way he bet so fast, like he was thinking "cmon just fold your PP give me the pot". What do you think about the river call?

      Hello Tosh5457,

      Well, obviously it's doable. Also it's often times your plan with the Check behind. To induce him to bluff against you. For him it was also good card to 2nd barrel. Although the question is if it's a good idea to Call it on river, while he will have those Ax hands in h is range. :(

      Best regards.
