      I think check/fold or check/call on the river is equal. I prefer to check/fold in this spot. Betting river is turning our card into bluff, IMO. What kind of hands do you expect him to call?

      We got such a hard spot because we do not 3bet preflop. You invited BB to join the pot. I know it suck to 3bet/fold JJ, but depending on Villain(s) stats, sometimes it's ok (cheaper).

      Hello carrapa,

      Bet the flop and protect your hand! We don't want to see Check behind. But as played bet it bigger on the turn and Check/Fold the river, not that many worse hands are willing to pay while even a flush completes.

      Best Regards.
