      Thoughts:
      - The button in previous hands had been very aggressive jumping on any sign of weakness. Essentially why I checkraised turn because I figured I was ahead a lot of the time and he would put money in with nothing.

      - Not sure what to make of river push though.

      Edit: Just checked back and the button had won almost every hand for like the last 20. Mostly through pure aggression.

      Looks like you are beaten there but I guess I am making the call on river also vs such player. Just I don't think he is bluffing on river. Looks like trips or maybe even better.

      Hello,
      Actually , especially against this type of players, your line should be bet/bet/bet.Make your bets bigger and you will be able to get most of the money in by the river, while creating a lot smaller Fold equity than by c/r on such a dry board.
      As played, just push river.There is no fold here so you are losing value with your extra small bet.

      Best regards,
