      Both players were very loose.
      I decided to keep control of the action by betting instead of giving them the opportunity to bet and wait and see if I get good odds. In the end, it's usually better to bet yourself instead of calling a bet.

      Hello Stevie8,

      Is this hand converted or did you make it yourself? :D

      But yes, either we block-bet/Fold the river or we just fold it directly. Doesn't really make sense to Check/call it whilst a lot of hands have us beat.

      Best Regards.
