      65 hands on villian - 18/12

      Am I losing value here? I considered raising him on the turn but I think he folds out many hands which might be calling/betting river.

      I was unsure what to do on the river and just checked hoping he would bet. But I think I should bet because he will call with Ax but also some PP's but I don't think he always bets with Ax and rarely with PP's. How much should I make a river bet if I do bet - half pot?

      Hi,


      Against a 18/12 that is very likely to check back the river your line is probably the worse you can take, you need to either raise at some point or donk out the river, depending on whether you think he can find a fold with an overpair if you raise. If so, donking out the river might look a bit weaker and get more calls just because it's the last bet until showdown.


      Hope it helps.
