      MP1: 103 hands 58/2.9
      MP3: 78 hands 43,8/28,2

      Basicly they played everything. They were calling river bets with air. Being very deep i decided just to check behind and keep the pot 'small' with just top pair if they decided to do some kind of tricky play on river. Mistake or correct play? Push river?

      Let's assume on turn they would raise with 55, 66, 77, A5, A6, A7, 56, 67, 75, 89, 84, 43 and call with that range of hands FD, OESD, PP pairs like 44, 88-TT and Ax hands. IF they call river bets with air then push river and try get maximum value from weaker hands, if you push river they would fold busted fd and OESD, and maybe will call you with 88-TT and Ax hand what your are beating.

      Maybe i'm wrong but let's wait coach evaluate!

      Hello prisly87,

      Easy Bet the river for value as you did that on the turn. There are too many worse hands which pay you. :)

      Best Regards.
