      CO was (39/20 56 hands) and likes to double barrel.

      Do you like the calldown line vs this player?

      River, bet $6 to get value from 88,TT,Jx,9x since my line looks like I can have a bunch of missed draws. He showed a few light calls before. You like the bet and sizing?

      Hi Optroot,

      Preflop: We can also consider 3-betting for light value against what appears to be a fishier player.

      Postflop: Considering your reads on him and the blank river I would play it the same. He is most likely calling light expecting us to bet all of our draws.

      In fact I would consider betting larger there to 7 or even more thus polarizing our range and I'd expect to still get called the same amount of time.
