      What line would you take? I think villain has some 2x in his range, KK and Qx and random bluffs. Was not sure of the type of opponent he was, prolly hand < 10 hands on him.

      the only 2x in his range would conceivably only be A2s just as a standard assumption, and by the river there are no combos of A2s left. villain almost never has a hand that beats us here, so i believe it as to be c/r river

      I like donk shoving the river.

      Villain has a showdown hand with this line imo, I assume I have the nuts, I don't want him to check back some fancy played JJ or not value bet Qx. He might fold Qx to a c/r, never folds Qx to a shove.

      Hello DeMarcohsp,

      Well, we can't exclude all QQ combos from his range. :P So the guy may as well have some QQ combos there in his range. Though I can't see him having that many 2x hands in his range which means rather I'd go for the stacks here usually, very capped range has us beat.

      While he has just pot size left on the rive and doubt that you going to see many bluffs there instead just shove it and get value from Qx or whatsoever hands which are worse than yours. Wouldn't be unhappy if he even folds there.

      Best Regards.
