      Is this worth a thin value bet on the river? I guess Ax hands might call

      Hello 0744379,

      Raise the flop bigger, we want to protect our hand. And as played whilst he could even have Ax hands also in his range I wouldn't mind the shove on the river. If you assume he has more of those FD type of holdings then Checking behind and skipping the thin value is also fine.

      Best Regards.
