      Anon table.

      BTN is a fish. Turn/river?
      He could have 9x, but his range is much wider than that (pockets, 8x, flushdraw), so easy vbet turn. My plan was to bet/fold turn, because it's unlikely that he would chRaise with weaker than 9x...
      River? A is quite a blank, and there is 14$ left in the 33$ pot. He wasnt too aggro so far, so I didnt want to ch/call against busted draws as he could checkbehind even that, therefore made a thin valuepush against whatever pair he has.

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      Not sure if I'd even willing to shove the river cause TT+ would most likely raise it preflop. So very capped PP range which is willing to Call as you may understand whilst the Ace is also bad card which scares a lot of them away. 9x is possible in his range, so I'd be Check/Folding instead whilst you say he is passive.

      The Ace may also complete his A:hX range which makes even worse spot for us to shove.

      Best Regards.
