      I think checking behind is best turn. What is the correct action on river?

      Hello BadeaCelRau,

      Well, against that kind of loose opponent who has a lot of just pair type of hands there on turn and maybe even draws I'd still Bet it for free showdown. If we are Checking on such a board then this practically means we are giving it up, there ain't gonna be many hands he is going to bluff, couple of draws even completed/2pairs possible.

      Best Regards.

      I think his limping range in the utg is suited aces, suited connectors and very small spp so I don't see many hands from which I'm gaining value on the turn, only 9T and maybe some A7/A9 with A :club: but I think those are very rare since he seems like an adequate opponent, not a big fish.

      Making it look like I'm giving up isn't a big issue since my plan was to call the river, but you're saying there aren't many hands that he will bluff. I don't know, I'm too inexperienced to judge that. If he doesn't bet I can still put a thin value bet and I'm sure he would be more willing to call it on the river than on the turn, because on the turn he is thinking I'm 3 barrelling and his weak made hand has no chance of getting to the showdown cheaply. Maybe I should just give up entirely when he bets, given his assumed limping range and your opinion that he won't bluff much ?

      Well, of course if you are Checking then most likely as you put the opponent on such a range then you should consider folding the river. What hands do you beat? Doubt that he would ever bet there even a weak pair or anything similar since he would be turning them into bluff.
