      Turn is bet-fold obvioulsy. Could I consider betting the river small for value?

      River: ($6.40) J:diamond: (2 players)

      hi Meemawuk,

      This thread belongs in the hand evaluation forums too so I will move it there now.


      PS regarding the hand-
      hmm, i like your flop bet, nice and big, (maybe even bigger) to discourage callers. they have a lot of face cards in their range so they would be looking at good draws here or two pair. i still see lots of KQ, , KJ, KT, QJ, QT in his range. i think AK probably 3bets preflop, esp OOP and will raise turn. against that range, AA has 63% equity.

      yes, probably you can go for halfpot river bet if he will call with those.

      Hello Meemawuk,

      Yeah, turn is a Bet/Fold. Although I guess I'd still bet a bit bigger ~$2,20 while his range may easily even consist of Qx hands and of course even weaker holdings which include draws.

      River is kinda thin, I'd rather prefer to Check behind, you just get value from Qx hands. Jx hands are even in his range which may play the same way. But of course shouldn't be even that wrong if you pick the thin value but then would be maximum of $2-3.

      Best Regards.
