      I'm not too concerned about the 5 pairing. Even a 31/16 player shouldn't have too many 5X hands. I think he still has a ton of 66-88, draws, and worse 9X hands which can continue calling the Turn so there's value in a Turn bet.

      River is close between c/c and bet. I think our hand is too strong to fold. By right if we expect him to fold a hand like A4 on the Turn then the River shouldn't change too much.

      If he's never folding any 9X hand i will bet myself with the top kicker. If not I c/c.

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      Against such a station I'd just Bet the river myself whilst he could easily have there as well 66-88/9x which may pay us. Though if I'd go for Check then most likely I'd Check/Call it as well whilst there are enough of missed draws.

      Best Regards.
