      bet smaller on f/t since board is so dry, and to get get calls from lots of weak hands, maybe ~60%, river seems to be cf.

      Hey MrMardyBum,

      I guess betting the flop & turn is standard but the question what to do on the river against such a dumb stack. Do you think he is capable of calling your shove with weaker Ax? Well if he was an unknown I would block bet myself ~0,6$ and fold to a shove. Another option is to make the turn a bit smaller if you dont plan to play on most river for stacks so you can have more room a fold.

      Best regards,

      Forgot to mention he was unknown (my apologies), and a blocker bet would of been perfect as soon as I read it, it clicked in my head that it would of been the perfect thing to do!
