      Hey Tomaloc,

      I think there is value here on the turn. It's true occasionally you may value own yourself against a better Ax, but this is far less of an issue when there are plenty of draws out there.

      River raise is fine, although busted draws are never calling and other Ax hands are likely to bet the turn. I think it's important to raise river small to make sure you get called by weak Ax and maybe Tx or JJ-KK.
