      I put him on a flushdraw or a AT, JT, QT, KT maybe JJ, 77, 99.

      Hello RazDirk,

      If you even do Bet the river then rather Bet it smaller, ~1/2 pot size should be enough cause he will have already hard time to Call with a lot worse. Also he has enough of A:sX hands in his calling range and the Ace could even improve his range.

      Best Regards.
