      Looked at his AF and figured he would most likely bet the river so went for the check raise line.

      A valid choice or just bet it myself?

      As shown I was a bit shocked he didn't bet again, he would likely have called a very big bet with 2 pair.

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Well, I don't really see why we should Check/Raise on the river? If he even has a weak hand he is going to Check it behind like weak Jx. Plus we don't even need to Check/Raise, he doesn't even have a full stack. We could just ship it ourselves and that would be most likely my line there. :)

      Best Regards.
