      Villain is bassically unknown to me.
      Do i have clear velue bet vs unknown on river and should i play B/f line as most profitable ? Or check behind is better ?
      My thought process was - i cbet for velue and i dont think i should bet bigger couse i dont think i can scare both players if they have fl draw will call me any way so with samller bet i want to keep their ranges wider..
      On river i stared to think that mybe his slow playing AA, KK and whanted to keep pot control with c/c line so i decided to check beck couse only some KQ i have beaten i dont belive JJ would hero call...

      I think the right line here would be to bet/fold turn and check the river. On turn he could have a made flush but also something like QTs+, KQ, AQ, and basically any pair from 22-JJ he is setmining as he gets direct odds to call pre.

      Hello dzikson999,

      I'd say both options are fine but though if we are Checking the turn then I am also Checking the river instead of betting. If I'd pick the thin value then I'd most likely do it on the turn and do it as protection + free showdown, could still bet something like $10 there and reevaluate the river.

      Best Regards.
