      On the river I think ch/c is the worst option.

      :club: you dont get value from weaker flushes what othersise would call a shove, wouldnt bet themselves.

      :club: he will rarely bluff here

      :club: if he shoves for vaule you will most likely be behind.

      I either shove or ch/f here, my choice depends on the opponent. But since you came to to river hoping to hit your flush, I'd shove.

      The other problem, that ha can easily has here TxKh or a simple Kh hand. If he has a high VPIP he will have other trashes, but if not youre in problem.

      Depends on opp ...

      But ye he called two streets I really don't think he will ever call two streets without heart - what hands??

      Sets or two pairs he will play fast on flop :)

      and I don't see anything else there!

      the problem is on the river ... I think he doesn't call ANYTHING else than a draw for reason above - he valuable hands he play fast :)

      I'm not sure he will chase 2 streets with something like JhTx

      More sense makes hands like AxJh,Ax9h,Ax8h ...

      On the river depends on your reads do you think he calls something like 9 high flush? I don't think so ;)

      If he is fish I push if he is kind of reg I will actually play c|f river :) maybe call a small bet definitely not calling this by a reg :)

      Hello feverfew,

      Turn: Why do you 2nd barrel? Do you ever think that there will be a lot worse hands which pay you or you get value from? Only K and that's pretty much it. Against any other you just value-town yourself. So you should already think what to do on the turn? And not what to do on river. :) I'd most likely just Check the turn and very likely towards even giving up my hand since we can't be sure how good our FD is nor if we get the implied odds.

      As played
      River: Why do you Check/Call? What worse hand will pay you or I mean ship? Not many draws even missed. Either ship yourself if you expect to get called from worse or as played Check/Fold.

      Best Regards.
