      It looks more like a fold here. Had the river been a blank (no FD completed) I would love your line!

      Even players that seem rather passive like to call twice with draws and then try to bluff the river so the bet/bet/check/call is very useful. You can often use it with the nuts when draws bust and instead of calling you check/raise river since 2nd or 3rd nut type hands will call anyway and you get an extra bet from his busted draws.

      Hello Sikac,

      What kind of hands do you beat on the river? There is no way he is betting with a lot worse anyways. Either we are betting ourselves the river with Bet/Fold to get value from worse pairs/PPs which most likely will Check behind or we just Check/Fold it.

      Best Regards.
