      Hello Avatars91,

      What kind of range do you beat on the turn what you decided to Call? Do you Call with the implied odds for flush? What kind of hands do you expect he is calling on the river if you are even donking? What do you think he is doing with non-made hands, is he capable of bluffing?

      Best Regards.

      As you have pointed out earlier, in HU people generally play more aggressively and bluff more often. His Cbetflop and CbetTurn stats are also rather high. I think I beat weaker Jx hands, OESD's small PPs on the turn + I have a FD (not the best but not the worst either). On the river I might get called by a weaker flush or maybe some 2pairs or a set even - hands he would most likely check behind.

      Well, if you had such a thinking then why didn't you Bet the river yourself to avoid him Checking behind?

      Because I'm not sure if my assumptions are correct. And at that moment I didn't have enough time to think it over. Would you agree with such a line?

      Depends which line you had in mind? The line you played above in your hand nope. :) But I guess you already got how to play it.

      So the best way would be to bet the river myself?
