      Nice hand, well played. And also don't forget to Bet/Fold the river.

      I think you should still make it bigger on the river. At least 1.8-2.2$ and then if he does minraise you you have an easy fold. As played if he minraise I still call altought I`m beat very often just because you get 7_1 odds.

      As BogdanDin7 earlier said you can bet a bit bigger and then it will be an easy fold when he raises but myself I prefer to bet small and fold to a raise because such calling stations can so easily call on flop with 4 or 9 and I don't think they would raise there an Jx hand.
      So conclusion: You can bet bigger river then it would be an easy fold for you. But myself I find it OK to blockbet here very small and fold to a raise. He wouldn't raise here Jx hands if he isn't a bluffing maniac.

      yes, if he minraises my small river bet it will be a hard spot to fold but after being beat many times it gets easier to do. AA is nowhere near the nuts on this board. tyvm for all your posts.
