      Hello, what should I have done on the river? Shouldn't I bet in this situation or was it the right move? Until the river I felt confident in my actions but then on the river I was not sure anymore about it. What went wrong? Bobble

      fold turn to villain's raise. villain won't be raising anything worse than Ax in this spot, and that is a generous raising range. as played definitely bet/fold turn and check/fold river

      Hey ooptix,

      I would just X/F turn since I dont expect people to be bluffing me there if they have a showdown value hand. All preflop Ax are calling the flop so lets say there should be enough of them.
      As played:
      Just Bet/Fold the turn. There is simply no sense in calling this off nor trying to turn our hand into a bluff since we are very rarely be ahead or can make better hand to fold.

      Best regards,
