      Preflop: Hero is CO with A:club: , 6:spade:
      MP2 folds, MP3 raises to $0.75, Hero calls $0.75, 3 folds.

      Flop: ($1.85) A:diamond: , 9:diamond: , 2:spade: (2 players)
      MP3 bets $1.32, Hero calls $1.32.

      Turn: ($4.49) 6:diamond: (2 players)
      MP3 bets $3.2, Hero calls $3.20.

      River: ($10.89) 4:heart: (2 players)
      MP3 checks, Hero bets $7, MP3 calls $7.00.

      Final Pot: $24.89

      The plan originally to float him and try get to a cheap showdown but when i hit top pair the plan was to get as much value as i could without getting it all in.
      I'm picking that i'm up against an AQ, AJ, AT type hand possibly TT, JJ, K9 type hand with one diamond but not very likely. Was it fine to barrel the river here? If he had have raised me on the river would it have been an easy fold?

      kinda sucks because he has to be kinda stationy to call you with a lot worse on the river, so many (very) strong hands in your range...
      i'd still bet river but lower, like $4

      [edit: also why call preflop :f_eek: do you have THAT massive of an edge in the guys]

      Hello legand73,

      Preflop: Don't really like the Call here at all, you don't even dominate his range and he is a nit. So rather dominates you hardly.

      As played
      Postflop: Seems to be fine, I don't mind the play here.

      Best Regards.
