      Why do you bet so small on the river? Do you think his range is so elastic? It's a 3rd barrel, only KQ and KTs in his range that COULD call but probably wouldn't against 3 barrels because you look like Ax. When you look like Ax and most other Ax hands just bet bigger to make a split costly. I'd bet about $9 and fold to shove because he doesn't bluff there ever.

      Btw, are those your SH stats or combined with FR?

      Hello cordaci,

      Either way it's a block-bet/Fold on the river anyways. But if you take a rather value-bet on the river then you should bet it a bit bigger.

      We of course can't Call on the river, we don't beat anything and doubt that he is bluffing.

      Best Regards.
