      Hero ???

      Of course I'm not ever going to fold here, my question is, maybe I could try a check/raise since this river can help a lot to villain (prob. making straigth or flush), or is it better to play bet/call??

      if villain has KK, AA or JT for example, he'd check behind.
      So I guess I'd just bet 14$ hoping he has either straight or flush and jams all-in.
      He could talk himself into calling your riverbet with the hands from above.

      One other thing: Why didn't you donk 5$ so that it looks like a steal?

      Let's see what the judges think.

      Best regards,

      c/rai is reasonable, but villain is not always betting there and if he has flush/straight, he might still raise your river bet
      I´d bet 9$ on the turn and 3/4 potsize on the river
