      I like a small value bet on the river, say 20c. Since villain is in SB he can have a lot of weak Q's such as Q6s and he may call with a stubborn jack too. Don't bet too big since you will only get calls from the top of his range which will beat you. Expect to lose this pot ~1/3 of the time he calls but I think we make money in the long run.

      Hello sebsejr,

      Well, not much you can do there and I wouldn't change much. There is still some value against those kind of opponents who can easily even Call with draw/Jx on flop&turn.

      Best regards.
