      Other options on the river? Is there still value in betting small (~12-15$)? I dont think there is many Jx in his range after limp/calling preflop, it could contain mainly small PPs and small-middle SCs, so with any 8x/6x/5x onepair-hand he would checkbehind to showdown and wouldnt call any bet, but he could have a number of 2pair+ combos on this board which beat me.
      I dont have notes on his busted-draw habits, but if he's playing a draw this way, calling turn, and pushing bluff allin on the river, only thing I can say is "Nice hand, Sir!" :f_cool:

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      I'd be towards block-betting myself on the river cause we can't be sure if the guy is going to even bluff vs us and if we can bluff-catch here. Often times I'd be towards Check/Folding if I pick such an option.

      But overall if we take this way then his play doesn't make really sense. He wouldn't ship with just Ax there any 2pair/set would have raised earlier, so his hand is pretty polarized which might force me to Call down with some dynamics.

      Best Regards.
