      is check/calling the river better? or check/folding against such a fish? villain is unknown but im almost 100% sure he is a loose passive fish from what i have seen before this hand. which is why i decided to just bet bet ship. he has folded to me on the turn and again on the river before and i was pretty sure he would be looking me up with some Qx hand. is the ship on the river too aggro against a passive guy?

      This hand is very standard and WP imo

      Just sucks that he has a direct line to the RNG and called in the 3c on the river :D

      Fish dont fold pairs and we should capitalize on that by shoving rivers for thin value (even though KK is not THAT thin here imo)

      cooool i never used to play like this thinking that i will only be called by better. i've since started making more aggressive plays like this because what used to happen was i would check, they would check behind then table something crappy like middle pair lol. why is it not so thin?

      Hello DrDunne,

      You wont accomplish much with the Check/Call there so instead we should just ship it ourselves vs such a player.

      Best Regards.
