      You get too good odds, which means you have to be good very few percent.
      So that makes river call easy to me with top pair

      Vs a reasonable player you could fold. It would be a clear little value bet to get Ax or JJ-KK to call their flush.

      Vs this home-gamer (60-3) it would be much harder to let go. If the sample was bigger 75 W$SD would fold for you. As it is not you pretty much have to call the fish and continue investing in your read of its play. Suited cards are so pretty, and the villain often has some stupid 2 pair here as well, or a stronger / chopping ace (A8+, A4 beats you, others chop).

      Really its hard to think of many hands you beat. There is no busted draw for him to bet there. KK-JJ is about all. Sure, we only need to win 1/6 pots to make this call neutral EV, but are we even winning 1/6?
