      Hi,


      I like your line there, his bets so far have been pretty weak and it's credible for you to show up with a really strong hand on such a board. If i knew more about his c-betting frequency and what those smallish bets mean i might even have bluff raised the flop to begin with.

      On the river he mostly has a bluff-catcher like a decent Qx, maybe with some kind of gutshot, and it really shouldn't be able to stand the heat of a river bet. I'd probably bet more like $3.5 tho, to further discourage him from looking us up with a top pair just because it's relatively cheap.


      hope it helps.
