      Hi,

      Yeah I think I like it. He's not folding an ace regardless of your betsize. You might however want to go a little bit smaller on the river, the board is still quite scary (he can have lots of 2pairs/straights!), so betting slightly smaller and increasining his call frequency might be preferble. Around 6-7 seems fine.

      ifs

      River bet-sizing is huge imo. Even half pot or little more then that is fine.
