      Interesting spot on the river. Fairly suprised when he insta folded as there are very few 6's in my range, think he was just weak player and didn't spot the situation.

      My question is, do you call a shove here?

      I considered not betting the river as I didnt want to have to call a shove but it seemed a waste of position to check back.

      What ya think?

      Hello MasochisticDesire,

      From how many worse hands do you get called on the flop? Might even as well just Check it behind and reevaluate the turn.

      But as played why would you ever Call a shove there? You are just splitting with any hand there whilst could easily be even against 6x hands.

      Best Regards.
