      Full Tilt Poker
      No Limit Holdem Ring game
      Blinds: $0.25/$0.50
      7 players
      Converter

      Pre-flop: (7 players) Hero is UTG+1 with A Q
      UTG folds, Hero raises to $2, MP1 folds, CO calls, 2 folds, BB calls.

      Flop: A 5 4 ($6.25, 3 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $4.5, CO calls, BB folds.

      Turn: T ($15.25, 2 players)
      Hero bets $9.75, CO calls.

      River: 2 ($34.75, 2 players)
      Hero ??? .

      What a ugly river!!
      Villain is calling staion.

      VPIP is above 40, AF is below 1.

      On the river, 2 is totally suck.

      So which play would be best choice?

      b/f ? c/f ? c/c ?

      To me the river is blank. For an oesd he needed 63 which is very unlikely, so you think he was drawing at a gushot?

      You say that he's a calling station, so you need to valuebet more and bluff less. I think it's more likely that he had you the whole way with a set, 54, A5, A4 or something than that he just hit he deuce on the river. So valuebet this river.

      With that VPIP he can have every hand that's possible (FD, OESD, two pair, set, weak ace). I say check/call on the river, or a blocking bet.

      And I don't see a bad river there, it's unlikely he has a 3 there. I think you're saying that because you know the result, but river it's a blank.

      b/f here,but not value bet, blocking bet.I'm pretty sure he has Ax(where x<10) he might have cought 2 pair with one of the cards down, or even a straight

      I don't think the river is a blank as mentioned by posters. Villain could easily have A3, 43, or 53 here considering how loose he is.

      Ugly river for sure with that VP$IP, I would probably check call or block bet as suggested by another person. More-so lean towards the check call, I think.

      Why should vilalin hold 3.
      To me river is also blank.
      You can c/c for bluff induce or shove to get called by worse aces.

      because:

      "Villain is calling staion.

      VPIP is above 40, AF is below 1."


      that means a 3 is very well in his range, imo.
