      I think I'd rather bet/fold river, because that way you get to decide the betsize on the river. This way, you might have to call a close to potsize bet because you decided to go for c/c on the river. You avoid this by making a half pot valuebet yourself and folding to a raise.

      I agree to this...BUT, will villain more times than not just check behind and in hind-sight giving us a free river because we bet on the turn?

      If they have a flush they won't check behind river (why would they do that? :/), but they will with all worse hands. That's why betting is better :)
