      Hey there Midstackers!

      How would you play the river?

      The flop came great, Turn made a lots of draws possible, but I don´t mind that too much. However, the river came the worst it could because I think that now when only a T is needed to actually hold a straight, flush is on the board... I just decided to take advantage my position and i checked behind.

      Now, I´m also interested how would you play if you were OUT of position. Would you bet the river or check called, fold or whatever? I personally would play check fold if OOP because CALL/CALL/CALL/BET is one of the strongest lines I know.

      nh imo. You get value from PP and 9x on flop & turn, sometimes he's on a flush draw. There's nothing worse that could call you on river, since board is so ugly.

      Oop I would play check/fold R. I don't think people would bluff this river on our limits. It's mostly for value.

      Hey AyuraoA,

      I think I check back as well because I do not think a lot of worse hands are going to call the River. Maybe if you bet like 1/3rd but then you are making yourself vulnerable for bluff check/raises

      If I were OOP I would check/fold the River expecting 2pairs to check back a fair amount of time so you do not really get bluffed out as often as you think

      Best regards,
