      Villain is nitty reg 16/12/4/AF 1.1/7k hands. On the flop he's folding most of the hands that I beat, but may bet with a pair if I check. Once he checks back the turn I figure I'm good. The 5 on the river doesn't change much so my plan is pretty much the same as on the flop, I don't think I'm getting called by worse pairs since my hand looks so much like TT-JJ. I was calling a small bet though, cause maybe he is autobetting some pair there. I was really surprised by the big bet. Could he have 55? I don't think he bets a Q that big, because he wants to get called by TT-JJ. Is this guy with AF=1 making a move? I don't think so.

      Vs missed CB on the flop he bets 20%, but I think it's ok for me to call there since he is betting his pairs to protect against AK-AJ. Afq river 21.

      Should I just bet the river half pot and hope I get called and not raised. I don't think these guys are ever making a move on me there but he could still have a Q. So I think the probability that a worse hand is betting that river is bigger than getting called by worse if I bet.

      a worse hand is not calling your river bet. so betting is bad. The board is so dry and you rep a queen really hard.

      i also think that this bet/check/bet line is usually some pot controlled queen from nits. so you have an easy c/f cos they dont take this line as a bluff.

      Hello circoflax,

      Nah, seems to be fine. No point to Bet the river whilst nothing worse calls. :) Doubt that he is bluffing either the river, just tries to gain value from you with the Check behind.

      Best Regards.
