      Hi,

      On that river card it is hard him to call down for example JT type hands, so I´d personally prefer c/c to induce bet from missed draws.

      It is also hard to bet smt like 0.5$, since he only has half potsize bet left, so it should be either shove or c/c. Good thing about c/c is that he might also check back Ax hands thinking it is not good to play stacks with just tp hand.
