      Turn: ($11.25) 4 (2 players)
      UTG checks, Hero checks

      River: ($11.25) A (2 players)
      UTG bets $6, Hero calls $6


      Anon table.

      UTG a fish obv.

      Would be better to just bet turn, and checkback river? As played, I think river is a call. Some busted draws there, plus I'm not sure he is betting Qx, definitely not Tx, so a few nutted combos, plus some spiked Ax are in his valuerange.

      Hi.

      Flop is close, don't mind betting or checking. Maybe betting is slightly better since we have a lot of equity, though it would be nasty if we do get raised. He's passive so I don't expect that to happen too often.

      Agree with turn check back, no value to be had.

      On the river, we lose to straights and some Ace high gutshots like AJ AK. I don't really expect him to value bet a hand like KQ here too often. So he is polarized to AX+ or busted draws. I think this is an easy call, esp for the half pot bet size.

      Thanks.
