      Hello,

      I would give up on river and fold to his bet. It looks a way too strong, betting potsize.

      Best regards,
      Rensu

      I think youre ahead of his range with 99 on flop

      so you can bet turn for free showdown on river

      as played Im calling the river because he has so high AF

      I agree bet on turn makes you more money when you are ahead and lose less money when you are behind as you get to control the bet size on the turn but if you check you can be facing a big bet like this on the river.

      So in general, if the board is dry, I have position and want a cheap showdown, it's usually better to bet/fold turn and most likely check behind river, than check behind turn / call river?

      yes, because if someone c/c flop, c/c turn and lead out river you can be goddamn sure that this is not just a bluff if he's not reeealy spewy.

      Second reason is that bad players "overplay" draws, especially FD, by c/c flop and c/c turn if they dont have enough implieds.

      you can't actually block turn here. he'll fold all worse hands that he C/C flop with, i.e. A high, pps, 43s, and the occasional K high, even if we only make a small bet. also, you hardly need tp protect at all, as the only possible draw is 54s and overcarsds, and hands with overcards or an overcard will just fold. if you CB turn you'll often get free SD anyway, or villain can bluff if he was floating, but such a big bet is rarely a bluff imo and the river card is not one he'd bluff more than others.
