      VPIP: 66, PFR: 20, 3B: 6, AF: 1,8, Hands: 130

      Thoughts?
      What about my value bet on river?

      Given his double check I was putting him on some low-mid PPs.
      They are not so many tho... (hence why my weakish bet)

      Hi.

      Just check behind on the River. If you want value from those pairs, you need to bet 20% of the pot or less. But I won't be surprised if he somehow has a better 9X, TT, or AX. I think your bet is value cutting (you get called by better more often than worse) and you should always check back.

      Thanks.

      Against a normal player, or at least someone who is not THAT loose, can I find a bluff on the A?

      Why would you want to turn your hand into a bluff? And I think the Ace isn't too great of a bluff card here, since people love floating Flops with Ace high on pair boards.

      I guess this board isn't so bad, but on those low paired flops it's super common to c/c Ace high since its relative hand strength is much higher.
