      Bet turn.

      As played, fold river.

      Bet turn, you don´t see too often c/r and no need to give player another free card.
      I think both calling and folding river are fine. ´Fold would be a littlebit better option. Players don´t turn their showdown value hands into bluff here too often and there is not a too much reason to bluff river with A high.

      i don't quite understand why I should bet turn. I don't see what I need to protect against.

      and what can I bet for value against? JT, T9?


      after turn check his range was basically his whole preflop range. on the river any K and any 8 makes a straight, and given the action and board I think he will think that he can easily represent K/8, and that I will not very often have K or 8.

      Well, both is possible. CB turn is definitely an option as well as betting. On the river you can flip a coin for calling or folding, shouldn't make a big EV difference.

      My line: CB turn / call river
