      should I value bet on the river also in this hand?

      It's hard to say without more info.

      1) Is he straightforward or does he trap? If he's those tricky passive fish I may be less inclined to bet. If he's a straightforward station fish I would definitely bet. If he's a decent reg who can handread well, he should know that you should have many straight combos so I don't see u having value on the River.

      2) With top set it would probably be much closer to a bet. With bottom set I'm leaning towards a check. You would basically need him to call a ton of two pairs and overpairs, which really depends on how bad (or big of station) the opponent is.


      Hmmm I just realized this is a 3bet pot. So I think this is a very easy river value bet cos he has overpairs way more often. Don't bomb it, just half pot so AA and KK make crying calls.
