      Yeah, a river C/C might be better since you aren't beating any Ax and betting for value vs Tx for a 3rd street is pretty thin (Jx wouldn't have chased 2 streets unless it was JT).

      Hi,


      I don't think check/calling is better, that guy is unlikely to bet anything we beat if we check to him except like A3/A4. Flushdraws got there, Tx isn't betting, if he somehow has Jx he won't bet it either. I think it's a check/fold. Blockbet/folding is okayish, check/calling against that guy looks bad imo.


      Hope it helps.
