      BB was 18/8/1 over 389. Calling station.


      Value bet.

      Value bet again.

      I was considering a bet for value vs 88-66 / 5x / 9x as he was a huge calling station.
      Was afraid of being trapped with 4x or Kx.
      I guess I could bet something like $0.25 on the river.

      I would rather bet like 7 cents on the flop here.

      On the turn your bet is fine.

      I think we could go for a smallish bet like 15-20 cents on the river. I think Kx is quite unlikely here but he could call us with weaker pairs.

      On a limped pot I'd pot flop and turn.

      I think it's a clear bet/fold river, especially if he is a calling station. He'll call you with any 5, 22, 33, 66-88, and maybe even Ax.

      The reasoning is simple: you need to win more than 1/2 of the time for your bet to be profitable. I don't think he'll have a K more than 1/2 the time he calls you there.
