      Hi DaJoker,

      Without any info on our opponent I would also fold the river after we bet.

      However my question to you is, what do you expect villain to call your river bet with or are we trying to turn our hand into a bluff there?

      Maybe 9x 77 and 55s . I dont like to check because i think he is gonna bluff me a lot of the time. So check/call , check/fold was no option for me . If i check, dont you think he is gonna take a chance to bluff me ? If i bet and he raise than is an easy fold , i dont see him bluffing me ever in this spot . Or you saying check/fold would be the best line ?

      LE: Yeah on that scarry river i think i can make him fold something better . But dont know if he is playing JJ and QQ like that . Actually i dont see him folding something better .

      Exactly, so we can't really vbet nor can we bluff.

      Betting to not be bluffed is also not realistic. What range do you expect him to have there after calling flop and turn? Does he really call random hands like KQ two streets to take the pot away from you? Or what hands can he actually bluff you with?

      It's important to actually quantify that range.
