      Hey Straywolf,

      Your flop cbet is fine, but folding to villains raise will usually be the best option, especially OOP.

      On the river you have a decent bluffcatcher. Villains range is either busted draws like 's or KT/9T or he has a slowplayed AA/KK, or slowplayed Qx. You should probably flat as opposed to raising.

      i was thinking against busted draws i do not get any more value
      but against Jx, not sure if AA or KK would fold.
      ???

      It's true you might occasionally get value from Jx. It's only a very small part of villain's range though, he might flat flop with Jx. Even if he does have a Jx he might fold to a raise in which case raising for value is a total disaster.

      I think value raising is too thin here, I feel that when you get a call you will be up against a worse hand more than 50% of the time.
