      Heyhello,

      If Villain is unlikely to bet worse when you check to him, sometimes it is better to bet out yourself

      The river is a check! because he can easily check back Ax on the Turn + your hand is very vulnerable OOP + I dont think you can get 2 streets of value often enough to make the EV higher than of the 1 street

      Best regards,
      Gerv
