      OTR, every draw gets there, and his river bet polarises his range so he either has air (or a really bad hand he turned into a bluff) or im beat, but i dont see what air he could get to the river with so i thing hes nearly always go it here, what do you think?

      Hey,

      Why do you check the RIver? it is better to bet half pot on the River yourself and get called by a worser two pair. Now you allow him to play perfect because he can decide what to valuebet & what to check back.

      Generally you are forcing yourself to call because his range is so wide from the get go, it is not a situation I like to be in

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      Yeah i see what your saying that he will call with worse 2 pairs, but wouldnt he raise his 2 pair type hands OTT, and would just fold his 1 pair hands to a river bet, i dont see what hands hes taking this line with that would call a bet OTR that i bet?
