      When he checks turn on this board, it is either give up or raise with overpair. I think with Tx or fd he bets.
      So when he calls, I put him on AQ, AK as bluff catcher, and I check turn, because I expect him to bet large on river to scare me off, I thought I can get more value this way. Is bet on river ok to let him call Ax?

      Hi mla,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: If he didn't bluff the flop why do you expect him to bluff the river with AQ/AK? He is clearly playing it as a bluffcatcher so we should be turn for thin value/protection rather than give him free cards.
