      Which hand do you expect villain to call on river that you have beat?

      He won't call any busted draw and if he has any J or 5 he has you beat. The only hand he maybe call is 66 or 77 which he could maybe have called on Flop but i don't think he would call that kind of hand again on turn if you fire a second bet.

      I c/f the river because if you are still ahead he will def. check behind because he has nothing. Otherwise if he bets he has you beat nearly every time.
