      villain seemed pretty aggro, but i still though he'd CB too many one pair hands.
      AT is very unlikely here, so i'm trying to get maximum value.
      will this kind of river bet induce a bluff sometimes and get called more often than bigger bets? should i make it even small to really go for bluff induce?

      Known players:

      0,25/0,5 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Players don´t bluff here almost never.
      Better is go check and expect that he´d valuebet two pair or make some kind of bluff.
      I rather like betting tun for value 10$ and then shoving river.
      This way you don´t say that you have Tx, rather AA, AK or two pair or bluff.
      If you want to induce bluffraise then bet 5$ into 25 pot, this way he get very good odds to call almost nothing, also that might induce bluff raise.
