      BB checks, Hero bets $13.25, BB calls $13.25

      River: ($52.75) 5 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero ?


      Villain is pretty tight VPIP 16/PFR 11/3bet 2.8/4bet range 6.7/5bet 0/AF 1.9

      Very scary flop, I decided to check behind because AQ-AK with A :heart: is shipping it and I don't want to fold thinking he has QQ-KK, reevaluate on the turn. Am I wrong not betting here? Must go broke spot or bet-fold?

      Turn: should I call if he shoves when i bet?

      Should I bet the river 100% of the time as played?

      Hi,

      doubt you can bet/fold in 4-bet pot. he may easily have there AK or AhQx, AhJx as many times as KK/QQ.
      but if you want to induce bluffs and want to get away on heart turns then check back is also fine.

      Turn: should I call if he shoves when i bet?
      - yes, very few people would check turn with best hands. Even sets want to protect their hands, so he needs to have A high flush to take c/rai line for value on the turn.

      Should I bet the river 100% of the time as played?
      - you can always check back on J, T and heart rivers, but 5 is so blank card that I would definitely shove there. AK is part of his range that he would call down and better hands would bet or shove themselves at some point earlier.

      best regards,
