      I got the sensation that I was beat, but couldn't fold.
      He probably bet thinking that it's a possibility that I would check too if he checks again (and if he has a strong made hand, he doesn't want this).

      Any 56s,78s, QQ, 66 is reasonable and could be hold by my opponent.

      Hi,


      As played on the river without reads and given the odds i'm calling too, you never know when he'll show up with a random Qx in that spot, some players are that bad.

      You don't need to bet that strong on the turn tho, backdoor flush isn't that likely and the board just paired discouraging most people to draw to it anyway, so 2/3 pot will do just fine again.


      Hope it helps.
