      Hero (SB): $25.00
      BB: $62.50

      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is SB with A :spade: J :diamond:
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.75, 1 fold, Hero raises to $2.20, BB calls $1.95, CO calls $1.45

      Flop: ($6.60) 2 :heart: 4 :diamond: A :heart: (3 players)
      Hero bets $4.00, BB folds, CO calls $4

      Turn: ($14.60) 6 :club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks

      River: ($14.60) 7 :heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $12.00, Hero ??????

      CO is 38/26 on 70 hands. He's stealing 40% on CO and BU and 2/2 times on SB. He folded to 3/8 3bets, folded to 1/8 cbets and I'm going after him with an extended value range already.

      BB who is 26/18 comes along not sure how that changes things.

      Anyway, I decide I'm going cbet and try and induce some action by checking blank turns. It fails and I am very unsure on whether betting river to extract value from worse Ax or checking to induce some bluffs now the 3rd heart comes is the best idea. Blockbet 1/2pot fold seems like a good Idea in retrospect.

      I check and he polarises his range by betting close to pot, call or fold? He has 6/8 rivers bet but I have no idea what that means, his flop and turn aggression are comparitively low.

      Hi Daphunk,

      As played I would call that river. You play versus a fishy aggressive guy and we played our hand "weak" so I would expect him to bluff some amount of the time. It's true that he checked back the turn but he may have been afraid of you slowplaying.

      And I do agree with you that bet/fold river is probably better because weak made hands check back
