      I decided to check call on flop and river against an unknown.Cbet would be fine as well but I decided to take the line of check/calling.

      Can I still call at the river?He beat slightly less than half pot here and I only beat a busted flush draw here. I think river is fold,yeah?I doubt he would be ever triple barreling here as a bluff,but I feel his bet size is quite small and that is why I decide to call.

      Hi TheKing7,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Why ck/call vs unknown? You are making a decision with limited information that will make your life harder on the other streets.

      Simply cbet and go for pure value.

      Yeah,normally I would cbet. It is not very often that I take this line.Hmm,should we triple barrel on this board?

      He has 50 BB only so you would have an AI bet on the river anyway. However, given the board what would you expect to get called by?
