      Opponent's stats: VP/PFR/AF/WTS/hands 78/10/0.9/38/41

      River is a difficult decision for me. I was ready to push the river if a diamond does not show up but once it does I have the feeling that there are too many hands that beat me now in order for me to shove. Although there are also quite a few weaker hands that this opponent could call a push with. As played – am I committed once I bet? Would you call the minraise? I personally thought that once he raises there I am toast.

      Hello Avatars91,

      Doubt that we can do much there, especially against his wide range and he could have weaker Qx hands I am still block-betting the river and most likely even folding vs min-raise. It was still just a freeplay pot. :)

      Best Regards.
