      $102.00 pot ($3.00 rake)
      Final Board: 5 J K 9 9
      Hero showed A A and lost (-$50 net)
      BTN showed 9 A and won $99 ($49 net)

      Vilain is a fish 30/14 1% 3bet, 20% bet river. On the river I think I have to call since I can beat every busted flush draw and a lot of double pair. But he doesn't bet that much. At the time I played the hand, I didn't see he was tight river. And I think bet >> X/Call.

      Hi Dobermann,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I agree with both your flop and turn bets.

      On the river I prefer to bet ourselves to get max value from Kx and Jx that may check back. Once we check calling is fine because he polarizes his range and he doesn't have that many 9x and we beat KJ/K5 type hands.
