      Hey guys!

      Villain: 16/12/5.0 after 327 hands, 3b: 6,7 on the BU

      I don't really like betting on the river and I don't like checking it either, whats the best play here?

      Pacific, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      BTN: $9.85 (98.5 bb)
      SB: $2.73 (27.3 bb)
      BB: $4.17 (41.7 bb)
      UTG: $3.27 (32.7 bb)
      MP: $10.85 (108.5 bb)
      Hero (CO): $10.64 (106.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A J
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, BTN calls $0.30, 2 folds

      Flop: ($0.75) 7 6 2 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.46, BTN calls $0.46

      Turn: ($1.67) A (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.45, BTN calls $1.45

      River: ($4.57) Q (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.98, BTN folds

      Results: $4.57 pot ($0.22 rake)
      Final Board: 7 6 2 A Q
      BTN mucked and lost (-$2.21 net)
      Hero mucked A J and won $4.35 ($2.14 net)

      Thanks!

      Hello RasTweet,

      As long the guy is even aggressive you could even let him Bet with missed draws but overall I wouldn't say that it's so bad to bet the river while there might be some worse hands which pay you and we don't want to face a huge Bet which might be difficult to Call but kind of must to vs his aggression. :D

      Best Regards.

      Veriz just a question you wouldnt mind if he X/C s but my question is what is the biggest amount that we can call?I mean as you can see his AF is big and I wouldn t surprised if he overplays some Ax or tries to save the pot with some missed draw. If we take such a line are pot size bets from his side acceptable?I mean it doesnt make sense just to pray:"Please, bluff small!" :D

      Well, if I go for induce-bluff then I Call any Bet cause betting pot size from his side makes the bet size polarized which means either the nuts or nothing. But why wouldn't he raise earlier with any strong hand?
