      River: ($6.20) T :heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $4.10, Hero ?

      i checked flop because it would suck if i got raised... in retrospect i think i would bet flop, turn and probably ck/decide river ... and if i got raised on the flop would just toss the hand ...
      which is the best line ?
      what to do on river?

      thanks

      The best line here is usually to bet/bet/bet.

      As played, it's to check/call all the way. Checking flop doesn't make sense if you plan on folding on more or less blanks. There are only a few 5x in his range and your hand looks like AK, 22, it's not that hard to see and try to bluff with a hand such as QJ with clubs.

      Not betting because it would suck to get raised is not a reason to check just like betting because you probably have the best hand is not a reason to bet. :)
