      Best river line?
      Thought about value shoving, but since FDs missed I thought he can still have some bluffs.

      If he checks behind I don't think I miss much value since I doubt he would call much worse for 3 streets.

      You can value shove because you can represent busted draws and A high barreling too so you get lighter calls.

      If you think that he can bluff this river after you 3bet and bet twice, checking is doable but I think betting should be your default to protect your bluffs as well. Not that you bluff super often here but you are kind of perceived to do so imo.

      LE: Lol, looked at results.. Well, you can check/call then probably.. he doesn't bet TPTK here, he is betting like quads or nothing so calling is easy, only problem is him actually bluffing. :)
