      Pre Flop: ($0.45) Hero is SB with A :spade: A :club:
      UTG calls $0.30, 3 folds, Hero raises to $1.50, 1 fold, UTG calls $1.20

      Flop: ($3.30) A :heart: 5 :club: Q :club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.20, UTG calls $2.20

      Turn: ($7.70) 3 :heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $6.00, UTG calls $6

      River: ($19.70) 7 :heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $20.90, UTG calls $20.90

      How would you play the river with me blocking a lot of TP combos? He looks passive on the river, so i thought he won`t bluff often and he will no value bet thin, for me to ch/r. I thought he is always folding Qx vs almost any size, so i decided to shove for maximum value?

      Hi.

      On this river we definitely have only 2 options
      1) Shove
      2) Check/raise

      I think over here it makes more sense to just shove and hope he has the last Ace. If we had JJ on a JTX board with a similar suited runout, then check/raise makes more sense, simply because way more draws miss. And people play way more combos of AX preflop as compared to JX.

      So I like a shove here.

      Nice hand.
