      My initial thought to the check raise was set because the board was so dry, but it was quite small so I flatted thinking 99 or 10s maybe even 77 or lower, the check by villain kinda throws me which is why I lead quite quickly but looking at it now leading river was pretty dumb, it looks like he has 99 possibly, any help or other lines would be appreciated, villain was readless only had a few hands on him.

      Hello xJCzZ,

      Bet/Fold the flop and that's it. Way too dangerous board to continue and no safe cards for us.

      But as played I wouldn't be Betting the river in first place, doubt that you are getting much value even from worse. Only reason is to block-bet it to avoid him betting big.

      Best Regards.
