      PokerStars - $0.25 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 5 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BB: $58.20
      UTG: $23.92 (VPP 39 / PFR 33 / WTS 22)
      Hero (CO): $27.42
      BTN: $25.00
      SB: $11.02

      SB posts SB $0.10, BB posts BB $0.25

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.35) Hero has J:heart: A:heart:

      UTG raises to $1.00, Hero calls $1.00, fold, fold, fold

      Flop: ($2.35, 2 players) A:club: 5:spade: T:club:
      UTG bets $1.50, Hero calls $1.50

      Turn: ($5.35, 2 players) 3:diamond:
      UTG checks, Hero bets $3.12, UTG calls $3.12

      River: ($11.59, 2 players) 5:diamond:
      UTG checks, Hero checks

      I call pre-flop because this guy opens quite wide. I would be more inclined to 3bet if he was CO or MP, but considering that there was also a deep calling station in the BB, I felt better about playing AJs in position.

      My question is on the river. I have floated the guy in his two previous hands, so I expected him to check/call quite loose on the turn. I thus think I should probably have mad another thin value bet against pretty much any Ax.

      What about playing this against a more standard villain? What is his turn range and will he call weaker again on the river?

      if you´re ever bluffing river your floats/flushdraws then you should definitely bet for value AJ. He would mostly bet himself AQ/AK rather than c/c turn, so you should be ahead his range. Given your history he may easily call you down with KK/QQ and very likely worse Ax hands

      best regards,
