      Preflop: Hero is SB with A, T.
      3 folds, MP3 calls $0.25, 2 folds, Hero raises to $1.40, BB folds, MP3 calls $1.25.

      Flop: ($3.25) T, J, 9 (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.00, MP3 calls $2.00.

      Turn: ($7.25) 7 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 checks.

      River: ($7.25) 6 (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.00

      I blockbet the river with midpair Topkicker but I didn't really know what do to on the River. If I check on the River, probably he will fire around $4-$5 and then I have to fold in my opinion.

      Anyways I think I want to get to the showdown as cheap as possible , is this true ? Especially because of his turn play?

      Thanks

      He limped in preflop and called your bet. What is his Range? I would say TT, 99, JT, 9T, QJ, KQ.

      After the flop, looks that he has hit a J or T, so I'd disregard other hands than QJ, JQ. KQ and JT would bring a bet in the turn, when you gave up.

      I think he is gonna pay your bet, but don't see another way to play this.

      Hi,


      Hard to say without reads, i think your line is fine, he'll call with Tx 9x almost always for such a small bet, and he likely won't raise it unless he slowplayed something.

      If i had seen him be aggressive before on the river I'd probably just check and call a potsize bet, whatever he has he seems rather passive, i almost expect him to only bet slowplayed stuff and missed flushdraws on that river since he didn't bet the turn. If he bets less that will look less like a bluff on his part but i think i'm calling anyway.


      Hope it helps.
