      If you think he's on a draw why not raise the flop as a bluff? Or donk the turn? Those are both viable options to get him to fold a very large equity share and pick up some significant dead money.

      As played, on the river I think a bet/fold is better than check/call. B/f allows you to pick your own price, i'd recommend about $1, and he will call you with hands that would check back when checked to such as 9x, TT-QQ but only raise you with better :)

      Hello nefarious26,

      One of the worst lines you could pick is Check/Call. Rather CB yourself and gain fold equity. If you go for Check then Check/Fold it.

      As played what do you beat which Checks the turn and Bets so big on river? Don't you think there is a lot more value by betting yourself to get value from PPs.

      Best Regards.
