      Weird hand tbh, would have been a sick spot if he had shoved the river, and it is possible he had a few jx combos in his range that he could have got to the river with, but he would also shove missed draws like FDs etc, and he would check behind all made hands that i beat

      The real question is, what line would be best c/c the river and turn my hand into a bluffcatcher, c/f the river, or shove/ bet the river getting thin value from his bluff catching range which i beat

      Hello,

      as played nh :f_thumbsup: If I check I will check/fold river, because what worse hands could bet here? I think two pairs/hands with showdown value are checking behind very often and you will run into Jx. But if you have a read he bluffs a lot with missed flush draw, call would be fine.

      I think a small blockbet on river could be a good play here too.

      Yeah I agree with you, it's like the thing is he's Gunna bluff this when I check alot if he hasn't got any showdown value, but the problem is what air can he have that he got to tw river with apart from a missed FD.

      I agree that you could blocker bet just to discourage him to bluff the river if he did happen to have a missed FD, but looking bad it's unlikely as he woulnt have had the odds to call 2 streets due to my stack. however do you think I could bet like 1/10 pot as a blocker bet but as a thin value bet as well against his bluff catching range?

      Hey,

      I bet way bigger on the Turn because I just want to be shoving almost any card on the River so I bet like $1.75 on the Turn.

      As played I think we still have a bet on the River because worser 2 pair might call but they wont bet the River so we have to check/fld as soon as we are check/folding

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      okay thanks gerv, so basically bet bigger OTT, and shove the river, if he has a straight OTR its just a set up??
