      I was up against the big stack, calling down people with a wide range and I felt I was beat to be honest. Should I have bet this river for value? Obviously I know he wouldn't have called with the busted flush draw but was it a missed bet? Let me know what you think guys.

      Hello Ghartman,

      Seems to be fine. While we are even a bit deeper then it's sometimes even slowplayed sets so Checking behind and skipping the thin value isn't wrong. Although if I'd expect him have a very wide calling range then sometimes we might just ship the river as well for value while he will as well have something like TT-KK.

      Best Regards.
