      Not sure what to do on this river, I block bet against his Ax range, but I also get the benefit of a small account of FE instead of chopping.

      Hello,

      Preflop raising is fine.

      Flop and turn looks good to me.

      As played on the previous streets, I'd be more inclined to just check/fold here. I'm not even sure if he calls weaker Ax here and I don't expect him to bet a weaker hand if he bets.

      Best,
      Plamen

      I agree he wouldn't bet with weaker hands, just to clarify I don't want him to call with weaker Ax, I want to fold him off a chop as I split with any weaker Ax.

      I'm not really sure as well here.
      Without information it will be hard and we can't be sure he folds the split, and we can just value bet ourselves against his better hands.

      Overall, against unknown I prefer check/folding here since I expect him to check his weak made hands.
