      Villain does have 84vpip but I still think it looks a bit like a valuebet on river. This hand just gives me the feeling I'd be tempted into calling riverbet also and normally seeing villain turning over the Ace having called two streets with sweet FA Ax that has now turned into TP or Two-Pair

      Judges, Is blocking River Better than C/Fing here?

      I am tempted to bet on the river, since player is so loose that he might still call with any pair thinking that we´re bluffing.
      b/f or c/c is likely same lines.
      c/c is fine when we think hé is trying to bluff river enough times that we should turn our hand into bluff catcher, although that player is passive enough to check back one pair hands
      don´t like c/f, since we´re likely ahead and we get good enough odds.
      DaPhunk: valuebetting river is better than c/f, since we get more often get called by worse hands, rather than thinking we´re beat.
