      maybe c/c turn or c/f turn even? it's hard to put villain on a hand at this point that we can beat...

      Check fold turn. His range for calling your cbet on such a board is either Ax or xx :diamond: :diamond:

      Just check fold the turn and be done with it.

      This, tho that player might peel with more hands than that like pocket pairs and 9x, still he probably won't call another bet on the turn with them when there is an A on board.

      As for the river pot bet it's a bluff really, if you don't want to c/f it blockbet/fold like $0.5 or something that can actually get called by a bad player with anything other than a flush.


      Hope it helps.
