      Opponent stats 35/18 AF:1,4 WTSD:29 W$SD:67 after 71 hands.

      What do you think is best option here? I think if we shove we don't get call from worse. Check/folding looks too weak, because he can easily have Qx, missed FD, so I prefer check/call.

      check/call for sure. Betting overreps your hand and he folds quite a lot (unless you think he has many worse QX hands like QJ/QT/Q9 which are absolutely calling 100% of the time).

      I think I agree with your assessment. 35/18 guy has a ton of suited hands in his range. We definitely beat 30%+ of his river betting range so that warrants a call

      Hi,

      I would bet 4$ on the river. K is scary card, but if he end up Qx on the river he would not really going to fold that another bet and most likely would often just check down his showdown hands. Also some players would always call you down on 88-TT

      best regards,
