      Forgiving my slightly loose PFR (I had been picking on BB mercilessly for about 130 hands) I am happy with my play. I'm not happy with my river play though, should i make a smaller bet on the river? i felt SB called with a pocket pair likely 99-JJ or a weak Kx, but think my river bet scared him from calling.

      my stats 16/12/2.3/8.5
      SB stats 20/17/6.5/2.1

      Hello nonamesleft,

      Preflop: Wouldn't advice to play such a hand in first place from MP1. :) Doubt that your postflop skills are so good and obviously you wont hit that often with the hand.

      As played
      Postflop: Nah, I doubt that I would play much differently. Did you pay attention that he is all-in on the river anyways? :) If he has a hand then he is calling it anyways.

      Best Regards.
