      BB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($3.60) 9 :diamond: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $1.50, BB folds

      Villain is 52/16 with 0.9 AF. His WTS is 38%. I bet here thinking that maybe he could call some K, Q or J high Nothings, but in Retrospect I think this is silly, cos he'll only call with any pocket which of course beats me and I'm probably good with A high for showdown to win the pot like that.

      Basically, i'm not getting worse hands to call and i'm not getting better hands to fold......

      Check flop+turn and then minbet river vs a callingstation, not good. He will call u down with any pocket pair + Ax on river.

      C-bet flop IP. And If he has 50+% call cbet flop stat you can fire a 2nd bullet on turn.

      As played: check river.

      I would c-bet flop, board is quite dry and if he calls there a lot of times with gutshot, overcards, then I´m fine with that.
      I think it is better than checkl flop and fold to turn bet.
      I´d check river, no better hand would fold or worse hand call and you have showdown value.
