      Hi Double2,

      Preflop: looks fine for thin value.

      Postflop: Given that his range is wider and he seems to like to bet when checked to (and fold a fair bit to cbet) I agree with your ck/call line.

      Did we end up betting the river? I don't see a bet amount. It's an ugly river but we still have some value from certain Ax and Kx/Qx hands.

      I didn't put my action river because I want to know what's our best line without spoiling :)

      So you would bet river?

      Yes, I would bet $11-$12 there and expect to get called by all Ax, some Kx (with flush/gutshots) and Qx.

      villain looks like a fish (40/28 if i read the stats good).
      he can easy be calling with a club,weaker ace..

      he will also bet these hands, so if we bet, we just make him fold very weak hands, that he may turn into bluff too...
