      I had stats on him but im not sure how to put them on a hand history.... He was nitty and by checking on the turn i felt he was really weak. My ak wasn't beating anything tbh so i would rather take a stab at it.

      Hey Swire,

      it's nice hand until river. I don't really like your bluff in this spot. As played, your opponent is most likely holding a missed draw and against that you're already ahead with AK, so you will win the showdown. On the other hand, I don't see any hand villain would call flop, cb turn and then fold to your river shove that would be better than yours(a bluff is useless if you can't make any hand fold that is better than yours). For this reason I just c/f river or c/c if your opponent has a tendency to bluff often.

      As far as I know, the only option is to replay the hand, pop-up villain's stats, then printscreen, cut out the stats, get image host on the web and put the pic on the forum. Pretty complicated, but I don't think there's another way.

      Regards,

      If BU is nitty enough then perhaps. If BU is solid post-flop then definitely not since your hand is pretty much face-up.

      A decent villain might be able to reason along the following lines: EP raise from solid shortie and flop cbet w/entire range(decent PP's ,big aces). Very drawy board on turn and shortie doesn't protect his hand with a bet;shortie probably has OC's (not :diamond: :diamond:) .Shortie stabs river with a card which hardly ever helps him therefore I snapcall w/any pair.
