      Hero wins 119.9 BB

      he is unknown.

      Is it ok to cbet here IP, and plan to barrel on scare card turn and river? If I would be OOP, I would give up on this board.
      Fold river? His bet on river is either set or air imo. I doubt that he plays set this way, because turn is a scare card, so it doesnt make sense that he wants to scare me.

      Flop: We have 2 overcards, and a backdoor flush draw, and some backdoor gutshot straight draws. I think this is a bet, irregardless of whether we are IP or OOP.

      Turn + River: No point raising and no point folding, we are good often enough to call down.

      I think the results pretty much answered your question about the River spot. If he can show up with ATo here he can show up with so much junk. This is a fist-pump snap call. if he had a set he would probably check/raise the Turn to go for max value and also protect vs your flush draws, as opposed to just betting. The King is also a card which you will certainly try to represent really often.

      Nice hand.
