      MP: 187 BB
      CO: 40.5 BB
      BTN: 100 BB
      SB: 105.1 BB

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, Hero posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has A:spade: 6:spade:

      fold, fold, CO raises to 2 BB, fold, fold, Hero calls 1 BB

      Flop: (4.5 BB, 2 players) 5:heart: 6:club: 3:club: Hero checks, CO bets 2.2 BB, Hero calls 2.2 BB

      Turn%s: (8.9 BB, 2 players) 3:heart: Hero checks, CO bets 6 BB, Hero calls 6 BB

      River%s: (20.9 BB, 2 players) T:diamond: Hero checks, CO bets 10 BB


      just a line check. guy opens loads from late pos - 37% from CO over 300+ hands, cbetting 90% of flops.
      no reads how he plays later streets..

      is it a std call on the river ?
      what about same hand vs an unknown, would you play it different?

      vs this guy I think it's fine to call. the half pot bet does seem a lot like value though - I wouldn't mind a c/r on the river as well with some 5X/6X combos but A6 is probably barely strong enough to call vs a wide range

      vs an unknown it's closer. I suppose you have 77-99 to call down and you can also call with some of the stronger 6X hands like A6 K6

      i wonder if the average player bluffs half pot enough of the time though - looks so much like a value bet to me, folding can't be bad cos many players are imbalanced here but based on bet-size and how much you are "supposed" to defend then A6 would be a call.

      good points, and I like the x/r idea with FH blockers
