      What you think about betting on river like 1/3 of pot?

      Flop bet is fine. Turn is a really nasty card so we are checking, probably with the intention of calling to catch some bluffs from draws floating the Flop.

      On the river, he either has a busted draw or a Queen. So no reason to bet. Check and bluff catch him unless he bets really large but I'm willing to call a 2/3 pot bet or less.
