      We likely have to call the river as played even tho we're not happy about it. Since it's really dry and his range is wide i don't even mind c-bet/broke on the flop provided he's at all aggressive if we're going to get stacks in by the river anyway.

      It's really hard to play these spots with almost no stats. Some of us won't fold by default because unknowns are usually bad/crazy and the board is very dry, others hate variance against those 'i'll be busto in 10 hands max' villains and will take weak lines by default to save themselves the headaches. Just follow your guts, do what you're comfortable with and learn from the showdowns, nl10 is only a means to an end.

      Hope it helps.
