      PF = standard

      FLop= value raise (should I have made it larger?)

      Turn= value bet

      River = ... ? based on PF play and because he is passive he can have here Tx or a flush... so I decided just to call. If I raise the only worst hand that would call me would be some Ax witch is just a small part of his range (he could have some busted draws that are not calling a raise anyway).


      How was the play until the river? Do you think I missed some thin value by not raising the river?

      Whole hand is played fine. Nice hand.

      Raising river would be silly, because TX beats you, and flush beats you now. While he may often be making a blocker bet with a worse ace, the question you need to ask yourself is

      1) Is he calling me with worse on average?

      Not the question

      2) Am I ahead of his river leading range?

      If 2 is true but 1 isn't then you don't have value in a raise.
