      saw flop

      Gerv (CO) ($29.55)
      Button ($45.75)
      SB ($25)
      BB ($11.35)
      UTG ($29.20)
      MP ($27.95)

      Preflop: Gerv is CO with 8, 9
      2 folds, Gerv bets $1, 2 folds, BB calls $0.75

      Flop: ($2.10) 4, 10, 7 (2 players)
      BB checks, Gerv bets $1.25, BB calls $1.25

      Turn: ($4.60) 10 (2 players)
      BB checks, Gerv checks

      River: ($4.60) 8 (2 players)
      BB checks, Gerv bets $1.25, BB raises to $5.50, Gerv folds

      Can I make the vBet on the river or is it really thin? I think a 7x will still call but I think it will lead out on the River.

      I didn't liked the c/R on the River but I had to muck it

      With showdown value against a midstack unknown i'd just check it back, it's thin and you have no idea how he'll react to a smallish bet on the river, for all you know he might just go "I SEE WEAKNESSSSSS" and shove for no reason, or be slowplaying which these fishes seem to be doing a lot of. I'd rather see a showdown when it's really thin against erratic players.

      The idea is good, but try and make sure your opponent is predictable enough for you not to put yourself into troubles more often than the times you get thin value.

      Hope it helps.
