      CO is Nitty over 300 hand, I wanted to Bet/Fold the River but when I bet even over 1/2 PS I am getting commited to call the AI so maybe I should just bet bigger if I am going to bet?

      Hi BigAl,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Flop: Looks fine versus the nit. We can even bet bigger because he will play fit/fold here. He either has a hand that can continue or he doesn't (and when he continues he doesn't care about bet size).

      Turn: Same as on the flop, I'd bet larger.

      River: Why are we getting committed to call the river? We have a HUGE nit shove on us here and this is never a bluff or weaker hand. The pot odds we get for the call are about 18%. If villain can never raise a worse hand that means we have ZERO (0%) equity and thus we can still, easily, fold.

      Personally I would actually check/fold this river more often than not because I think we have very little value in a bet. There are rarely worse Tx in his range and JJ may not even call another bet.

      Against nits it should be relatively easy to play.

      Valuebet until they tell you otherwise (like he did here on the river).
