      Hi Daisuke,

      Preflop/Flop/Turn: looks fine.

      River: What can he bet for flop/turn that can call river?

      I can see most Kc to bet river as well so he doesn't have many of those.

      Besides that I can see him having AJc, ATc, KJc, KTc and of course bluffs that tried two streets.

      So I don't mind betting something like $5 (and I'm not folding) to induce either a light raise or call. I can't see KJo call there but he may shove.
