      FLOP ($2.50) 5:club: J:diamond: A:spade:

      Hero bets $1.40, CO calls $1.40

      TURN ($5.30) 5:club: J:diamond: A:spade: A:club:

      Hero checks, CO checks

      RIVER ($5.30) 5:club: J:diamond: A:spade: A:club: 6:spade:

      Hero bets $3.70, CO raises to $7.58 (AI), Hero folds

      Stats: 35/26/1.1, 14% fold to cbet

      I bet the river because he'd call with Jx and maybe 99-TT, while he'd check with those hands. That made me pot commited, and I don't even know if I can fold here...

      Hello Tosh5457,

      Well, obviously your thoughts are correct. Although I don't understand the idea behind making it so big. :( He may easily even be trapping you. Since as you see even such a player will have hard time Calling the flop with a lot worse while being in 3bet pot. I'd myself bet ~$2 and hope to get called from such hands.

      Best regards.
