      CO 69/8/0.8/161
      45/34 wtsd/w$sd

      I did not Cbet the flop as I can not represent anything and he is loose enough to hit a piece from that flop. As he checked behinde I decided to take down the pot with pot-size bet and if not I had some outs on the river. What should be correct action on the river?

      If you don't think you can take the pot down on the flop, you probably won't on the turn either.

      As played, on the river I'd call. With those stats villain will often have J rag or even medium pairs.

      Hello AxsisHalon,

      Turn: If you don't Bet the flop then I don't see any reason to Bet the turn either, of course we could threw a block-bet there but your pot size Bet just doesn't make sense. Then instead CB the flop whilst you also have some backdoors and maybe even fold equity.

      As played
      River: Check/Fold it, doubt that you will have much beat here or instead block-bet/Fold it if you assume him having enough of worse hands, although I doubt so.

      Best Regards.
