      Hello,

      Turn: I'd likely bet here also, ~$12.

      As played
      River: Call his bet.

      Best regards,
      Rensu

      Bet turn vs calling station.

      Go broke on river.

      You should bet turn, since baord is still very drawy and he´d likely likely would c/rai with Qx or c/c with draws.
      River shove is fine.

      What worser hands will Call your shove on river? Some players are trapping here with AA, KK, I'd still prefer to just Call the river.

      Don´t think you see here too often AA, KK. I think any hand that he lead out, he´d likely call- unless he holds draw.
      And he should bet there with Tx for value sometimes.
      But since I wouldn´t never check behind on the turn I´m not sure which is the best play at the river.
