      i think your line is fine. alternative is to bet flop/bet turn if you assume his calling range has a lot of draws and Jx.

      river shove is interesting. :D

      i like the idea, but i think i'd rather go with a check/shove because his line looks a lot like Ax and missed draws which may bet the river, and we will ship it vs the top of his range anyway. (QT, 7x)
      you aren't getting a lot of value from Jx anyway.

      If you would like to have max-value from your opponent's hands, you should consider betting 1/3, 1/2 on river. By going AI every weak ace, and even some smaller pairs are likely to fold. Actually, only AK, AA might continue there, though K filling a draw might make QT to call. But it's unlikely that there's a hand like that, and it would call a bet like that.

      But otherwise WP, catching flop is fine, because A doesn't always hit there.

      one thing to consider is CO's stack.
      still i'd say that even against full stacks, against fishy players they NEVER fold anything twopair+. sometimes they even call with just one pair :f_biggrin:

      if you want to bet the river yourself for value vs his calling range make it at least 1/2 pot. 1/3 may work as an inducebet vs missed draws if you assume him being aggressive enough. :D

      Hello faronel,

      Nah, seems to be fine. I like your play but though I doubt that you going to get called much on the river, might even Check/Shove it instead to let him bluff with missed draws. If he had an Ace he would Bet the turn.

      Best Regards.
