      What valuehands could he bet on the river? If he potcontrolls 6x/8x/99/TT on the flop, I dont expect a thin river vbet from him as he was quite passive there so far. He will almost never have Jx. Draws are also strange, as he didnt cbet flop, but that's the most likely option imo.

      Interesting spot. Not easy :)

      Preflop is good. Flop is good.

      I'd also bet the turn cause we are ahead in many cases. We just want to protect and sometimes get thin value.

      His riverbet doesn't look like a bluff to me. He would have bet flushdraws himself on the flop.. I think this can be something like TT or weak Jx. His betsize also looks value-ish. If he calls AK on the turn I also think he'd check behind the R.

      F :)

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      Turn is pretty standard to bet, though on the river I'd rather fold it cause it really looks like a thin value-bet with Jx. :P If he wanted to bluff he would have done it earlier.

      Best Regards.
