      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
