      I wasn't sure many worse cards would have called on river, however despite the small sample of hands, I thought he was not too much of a brilliant player (xD ) and so I decided for a small bet/fold to decrease the chances of a bluff bet I wouldn't have been happy to call, increase the chances for average hands to call me, and being sure he wouldn't have bluff raised me.

      Thoughts?

      Hi.

      I like your logic, but maybe u could bet closer to half pot. I think he is never folding a 9 to a halfpot bet.

      That was half pot, it's just HM puts rake into the pot while pokerstars doesn't :(

      EDIT: no wait now I'm in doubt, maybe it was a 40%

      Anyway it's pretty close, I just think you can go slightly larger vs a bad player because he will just talk himself into calling because he has 25% pot odds on the River and he has to make a crying call here.
