      Hello Verre,

      Don't see him really bluffing the river. :D The plan of Betting the river this amount is for thin value and it should be as a block-bet which means we plan to Bet/Fold it.

      Best Regards.

      Reason I called was I have to be good less than 25% of the time and he's quite loose. I figured he might be trying to turn a KQ type hand into a cheap bluff. Since I never put a runner runner flush as a large part of his range and figured 2 pair and missed draws where a part of his river check min raise range I called.

      Obviously looking back maybe I got that wrong and he would have check called pairs and 2 pairs and folded draws.
