      there is no value against a reg in this board, it's not even close... actually maybe he even folds a hand like AQ-AK there.

      You are right. There is no value on river, but its more like semi block bet stopping him from bluffing and confusing him as well. It's some kind of fancy moves i'm not sure about. I wouldnt be surprised if bad reg calls AT, or good one folds AQ. I must be good 1/3 times this way. Taking c/fold line is -ev i think.
      And thats why i post this hand on forums. I need clever people discussion on it :) Let's see judge opinion

      Preflop: I would 3bet here, I don't like calling in the SB because BB could either squeeze, forcing us to fold, or he could call as well which makes playing 3way OOP really tough.

      Flop: Standard c/c

      Turn: Another standard c/c

      River: Probably a c/f here unless you think your opponent is barreling through with K:dX or Q:dX which is probably not the case for most NL25 opponents.
