      Villain was calling alot of steals if he is in positsion. So his preflop range is pretty wide.
      Preflop standar raise on SB.
      Postflop standard cbet he called i gave him range OESD, Tx, Qx, 55 and thinked maybe he float me .
      Turn : i wanted check/raise, because earlier hands i check/folded turn and he maybe want take pot down.
      River: 1st i thinked maybe he checked turn with completed straight J9/AJ but i decided to bet for value from weaker hands. After raise i think he can make this J9, AJ, maybe T8, KT, Q8.
      What should i do on river ?
      What you think what is his range on river raise?

      I think you put yourself in a tough spot by checking the turn.

      Just go bet/fold on turn and river and you will avoid this headache. He will still pay you with KT/AK/KJ often enough.

      Hello AA91EST,

      Easy value-bet the turn yourself than Check it and not even know where you stand with your hand. Though otherwise Bet/Fold the river, don't see him bluffing there.

      Best Regards.
