      Hi.

      You should fold the River unless you think villain is often going to be 3barreling the River with busted draws, which I don't think would happen all that often at NL10.

      You can split your range up, call with the upper end of your range (AQ/KQs/QTs) and fold the lower end of your range (QJs, maybe some KQ combos). We do this when we have insufficient information about our opponent.
