      Thought about shoving river to force out villain's weak hands (which I think he has a majority of the time) and Ax. As I would not expect him to have many 6x,5x in his range I think this play can be an option.

      Another one would be block betting very small but I would expect villain to have pp's in his range which I think I can force out with my river shove so I lean towards the first play. What is your opinion?

      Hello DeMarcohsp,

      I would rather 2nd barrel the turn than Check/Call it or whatever your plan was. We could sometimes even gain fold equity and not to talk about being ahead which could as well happen. :) No need to do it even very big, ~$2,90 or so should be enough.

      Best Regards.
