      Villain is unknown.

      Opening 76s UTG should be fine here I think, with only 1 slightly shorter stack at the table.

      On the flop I think it's a pretty standard cbet here with a flush draw. I can get him to fold some A high type hands, or hands like pocket pairs 77 and below. Plus there's a lot of good cards that I could potentially barrel on on the turn, such as an A or Q (bluff) or club (value).

      So when the Q comes, I barrel. If he has a hand like JJ or TT, he's probably going to fold now. When he calls my river bet again, I would expect him to have a hand like AK, maybe AQcc, or a flush draw. I don't think he'll have Qx here too often, except maybe QJcc/AQcc.

      Of course, he could occasionally have a set here as well, but I think most sets would raise the flop. And if not the flop, then almost certainly on the turn.

      Considering this range, I think I should have fired on the river again. The only hand he can really call me with is AK or maybe the random slowplayed set (FH/quads now). I don't think the few Qx hands he can have will call another river bet, and his missed flush draws will just fold, unless he decides to hero call...

      So, should I have bet the river again?

      Hey T,

      Bet/bet/bet is pretty standard him imo. His range contains Kx that have to think they call for split if you are vbetting plus there are a few better draws than yours on the river that you can make him fold.
