      Opponent playing at: 3-6 tables
      Timing tell: almost timed out on the turn when facing my 2nd barrel.

      We hardly know anything about our opponent so I think that up until the river it should be fine.

      River: the only reason I push is because villain almost timed out on the turn. It could mean that he simply had action on other tables or that he was considering a raise but if he really had a strong hand he wouldn't risk timing out with it like that, in my opinion. From that I conclude that given his flop call and turn weakness he is likely to have some sort of a pocket pair that is smaller than a queen. The river card itself is really not good for a bluff but since my push looks so strong and since, in my opinion, the opponent is rather weak, can it be justifiable?

      Hello Avatars91,

      As long we ain't even a full stack which could indicate to the fact that he is a loose player and I wouldn't really expect him to be capable of folding any PPs there I'd just give up on the river.

      Best Regards.
