      Hey, do you think the river should be a checkbehind because of my K-kicker and the 5 that completes a straight? I mean 98 is definetly in his range. I have a valuebet against 88-TT, J8+.

      this depends on how loose SB is. Since you min-raised, his range should be fairly wide. However he is in the SB so he shouldn't have too many weaker JX hands as compared to a BB defender who should have J8 J9 JT QJ J7. There are no busted flush draws so this makes it harder for him to hero call.

      It's close IMO, AJ would definitely be a value bet and QJ would be a check. IF you want to bet here you should half pot the River.
