      CO mucked and lost (-$1.12 net)
      Hero mucked Q Q and won $2.19 ($1.07 net)

      I dont know how to describe the meaning of the stats in terms of if the players a TAGy or LAGy in 6max so until I do Ill just post there stats unless I have less than 20 hands.

      I think the River I should maybe Bet a little smaller to try and get a crying call from OPs with the intention of Folding to a 2Bet.

      River: YOu are on the right track. You need to know what part of his range you are targeting. If you have a fullhouse and you think he has a flush really often, by all means, just pot or even overbet.

      But now we have an overpair, he could very easily have trips or a flush. If we want to target his weaker overpairs, then we need to bet half pot or less.

      Given starting positions and the tightness of CO's calling range, I think he is more weighted towards pocketpairs and less likely to have suited connectors which can hit trips or flushes.

      So I agree with your value bet. But make it much smaller so he is forced to make a crying call.
