      I did this river bet to fold to a reraise.But i didn t fold.Maybe i saw his AF and made the call.

      Hello EnterG,

      Preflop: There is no way to Call here and play the hand in multiway pot. Just squeeze it or fold.

      As played
      Postflop: Kind of overplayed your TP hand on the river. What kind of hands do you expect to beat which raise you there?

      Best Regards.

      +1 to veriz. that river checkraise looks really strong. he reps very little but i dont think he's bluffing. 54 and A5 are a good part of his range, or maybe weirdly played JJ
