      I guess you want to know if your play is standard here?

      Well if that's your question I think that the flop CB is fine, because you want to fold his air(which is a big part of his range).

      After he checks the turn behind you can safely assume that he is not at all strong (considering he has an AF of 3), probably a small pocket pair or, a pair with the 2 or the 3 or even a draw like a gut shot.

      Keeping that in mind, I would bet the river on an A, as a bluff, because I can very credibly represent that, as well as on a K or Q which gives us a pair.

      Hello sebsejr,

      Against such a station I wouldn't play much differently. While we have some backdoors then CBetting for the fold equity should be fine. Nice hand!

      Best Regards.
