      Hi, as the title says the guy is a big fish, it's not out of the question that he'd call down with an 8 and any K is def calling. Also I'd expect him to check a flush on the river quite often cos I'd seen him play AA by c/c all streets

      Do you think bet/fold is the right river line?

      Hello bradomurder,

      Why do you Bet the river? After even a draw completes. :) Pretty standard Check behind spot I would way. Even vs a fish I don't really see much value, you practically turned your hand into bluff on river.

      Best Regards.

      well i bet to get value of Kx and possibly 8x or mid pairs (he'd been making terrible calls) and he's never check-raising as a bluff so easy fold if he raises, but yeah if you think he's got a flush way too often then fair enough

      Not really a spot where you pick thin value when even a FD completed. There ain't that many Kx hands what are a lot worse and he ain't calling with 8x most likely.
