      Hi everyone :-)

      I am not sure about this hand. Concretely the river play.
      Would you bomb it or just check?
      Actually I would more prefer bet than check for following reasons:
      1. Our showdown value is too weak, only KT and AT we beat
      2. His range is mainly from 2rd pairs and worse.
      3. The blocker efect, we are blocking KQ,AQ,AJ,KT,AT.
      4. He just check twice, the population leak is, that he will often raise OTF or OTT his nuts.
      5. People are not triple barrel that often, so it looks quite strong.
      6. I also have a lot of value hands like: AA,KK,QQ,JJ,88,55,44,76s,T9s,AQ,QJ,Q8s,J8s,54s and maybe KQ.

      I would check behind the turn and take the free card. This board hits him well and i dont think you have much of a fold equity with a turn bet.

      As played, if you bomb the river you might make him fold a naked J but all Qx will be calling you. I would most probably yolo bomb it :) and get tilted when something like JT calls me down.
