      Villain is 16/10/0.5 over 60 hands and has many pocket pairs in his range so 2nd barreling the turn would have been the best line?

      On river I'm trying to get some value out of pocket pairs, is this fine?

      Which pocket pairs? What was his wtsd? Tough for him to call even with 88. Certainly not worse.I'd probably second barrel and give up on a non heart river.

      Well pocket pairs that didn't hit set (22,55,66,88,TT,JJ), and his WTSD is 43% but the sample size is pretty small.

      Oh and he doesn't like to 3bet his hands.

      Like you say. It is super-thin to go for value here I think. I'm pretty sure he checks back all the hands you beat if you check, and he also checks back a lot of hands that wont fold when you bet. By betting you I think he will more often show up with a better hand and you will lose 6bb more often than win an extra 6bb.

      Hello MikaIV,

      Don't like that much betting the river, I'd most likely just Check it and hope to see free showdown. He doesn't look like a very loose player either who is willing to pay with any PP.

      Best Regards.
