      Hey DrRaab,

      Rather bet the turn like 0,5$ for value and free showdown.

      As played:
      The problem is that even if he X turn the A on the river actually improves rather his hand so a thin value is not really a great option. So you kinda have to forget about his line on the turn and hope for a free showdown.

      Best regards,
