      Hey Imimba,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Flop: I don't mind ck/giving up on this board texture versus short, unknown fish.

      Turn: I would still stick with the ck/fold because we still have a street to play for and a potential bet. And I don't really want to bluffcatch Ax here versus unknown fish (for two streets).

      As played we are just guessing on the river here. So toss a coin and make the call or fold ;)

      Or wait, we can actually bet/fold the river for value. Why would we want to check here to him without knowing any of his tendencies? If he bet a small pair on the turn which is definitely possible he will most likely check back.
