      River?? Why do I call in this situation sigh :(

      Think I should have just checked back... hand makes me sick.

      How do I keep myself from tilting mid-hand like that. I know on the river I must be beat somehow, but I still call cause I am pissed for him for sucking out or whatever he did... so I force myself to call telling myself he must be bluffing... although obviously he would never do that here.

      You should definitely fold the river because you won't beat a weaker hand in this spot.There would be a few exceptions when you have reads that your opponent likes to bluff on the river.Even so,it's very marginal.

      Hello Dragar,

      Well, it's pretty standard spot actually where you should even consider just Bet/Folding the river. He is never-ever shipping there for 260BB with worse hands.

      Although overall myself I'd even consider betting a bit bigger on flop & turn for better protection while being that deep.

      Best Regards.
