      Hi staktas,

      Well river is a bit though spot...i just think i would play check/call River.

      You played aggressively Flop and Turn with a thought of protection. I don't see many Qx hands are still in the hand maybe Qx.

      With your bet you can get called with TT 99 but i doubt we are playing vs such a hand in that spot.

      So if you bet i don't see here many worse hands that could call you also because non of draws completed and maybe villain was on flush draw or maybe straight draw.

      I would play check/call river and try to catch a bluff or take the money with check behind. I guess this line is the most profitable.

      But lets wait on our pro judge if he thinks the same:) )

      Hello staktas,

      The river is already the question if we should Bet at all? Do you think you will get called from worse? Even if you do then you should just ship yourself rather than Bet 1/2. Another possibility would be to Check/Call and let him bluff with missed draws.

      Best Regards.
