      Did I miss some obvious value here on the turn? I think it's pretty thin in this spot. Cause I'm not betting river, right?

      Hey Trezewia,

      Think flop check back is totally fine on blank turn. On a drawy turn you could bet again and check back river.

      As played you have some value on river and should be betting this as default. Villain will lead a lot of his Ax hands.
