      I lead out since I have TPSolidKicker.
      on the River, I was doubting whether to push it with TPMK but it made me unsure.
      How would you play this hand? I do not want to give any freecards since board is very straighty/flushy

      Hi Gerv,

      MP2s play looks like a draw or a set^^ On the River you split with every J except J9,AJ, so you can consider a check call against busted draws since every draw is busted. Its close I think, why should he bet a set this high on the river, he wants value and his bet will scare many hands off. So I am tempting to call.

      His stat is 8/1 and in a Freeplay, I cannot judge what his range is. his WTS is 19 so I think he must have something.

      What can I beat?
      * Bluffcatcher
      * J8, JT, J6 or lower
      * 9x
      * Any PP lower than 6
      * KQ,QT,KT
      * Busted Draws

      I found 9x unlikely as well as J8,J6 or lower.
      So Busted Draws , PPs and Broadway-one-gappers/connectors are the only cards I beat.

      So should we play Curious George in this case and just call and note him down?

      If you bet more on the turn the river decision is easier.
      As played its really difficult. He might have a busted draw, a slowplayed monster or maybe he had Ax in hearts with top pair now.

      Against such a super nit i would tend to fold. He will often have an ace or better.

      Sorry ysessa for highjacking this thread, i didnt mean to.....i'm just getting used to the judge function ^^
