      Guy is a nit over ~100 hands, playing 15/11 or something.

      River:
      Should I bet? I think he doesn't call Tx and he would have raised sets etc earlier so vs what do I bet? If I think about it I'm only betting vs lower flushes but being a nit he almost only has Ahi flushes

      Hi,

      river fold is really bad IMO. just call and expect to win some of the time. Your reads and sample sizes are all not rock solid, and it's definitely possible that he could

      1) have a worse flush (somewhat possible)
      2) be bluffing (unlikely but still very small chance given that you halfpotted river which doesn't look too strong).

      You have the 2nd nuts so I'm never folding.

      1) Howmuch would you bet on the river? Which worse hands do you expect to call?

      2) Do you think he'll call SC's as low as 89s? Let's say he could have 89s -> He'll probably raise the turn. If he has 78 he probably also raised already. So another possibilty is J9s but he could also raise that on flop or turn so I still think most of his range is AJss, A9ss, A8ss maybe the low A2ss-A4ss. We get great odds but I think it's close. Really bad I wouldn't say. I also assume that he has 0% bluffs.
