      It was my 2nd hand at the table, BB is unknown but could be a reg based on his stack. That's why I chose to steal this light, since most regs fold a lot to steals.

      I found that I nice dry flop to cBet.
      When turn comes I am thinking perfect 2nd barrel card. He now is likely to fold a 9 and other PP that he has.
      He calls again so I'm thinking he should have a weak Ace most of the time and I river bottom 2 pair. I'm now 3rd barreling 4 value against his Ax.

      Is my line ok, or should I just take a more passive line, betting less on the river, maybe even checking behind. Cause for me that rivered 2pair was the nutz and all I could think was "Vaaaluee Toooown"

      even against unknowns players and nits I would fold pf 53o, you basically dot never need to play that hand and I think you can at least find top 80% to open there and fold your rest 20% to leave impression you´re playing reasonable.

      Also he plays quite poorly postflop even against 100% range:

      Hand Equity Wins Ties
      35 37.12% 11,432,073,356 2,052,878,200
      100% 62.88% 20,076,206,844 2,052,878,200

      Once you got there I think turn barrel is fine although without really good equity also it is fine c/f, if he has 9x you can always bet river expecting him to fold then unimproved.

      I´d overbet or bet 5$ on the river. he has there Ax and he would call you down basically every time unless you are shoving river

      best regards,
