      Fold pre? But the hand is so pretty :(

      Call river? I think not many players bluff here?

      Hello Farmarchist,

      Preflop: Depends a lot on the villain, vs some we may Call, vs some not. Especially vs nitty range there is no point to Call whilst it will be difficult to overplay + often dominated.

      As played
      Postflop: Bet the flop and protect your hand, doubt that he is going to pay you a lot more with weaker hands as TT/JJ or whatsoever anyways and whilst I'd protect from overcards. With betting you could easily Bet the flop and Check behind the turn and once he Checks again into you on the river you can Bet again vs TT/JJ or whatsoever weaker combos and may look it like a bluff. Though as played I'd fold the river, doubt that we are going to see tons of worse hands there bluffing/betting for value.

      Best Regards.
