      Hi,


      Tough without any reads, I think the river is a raise/fold spot on a paired board against non-moronic opponents.

      The main question you should ask yourself is this: how well do you know that player? If you're able to make a decent guess about what he can bet and call a raise with without jamming on you there, 3betting for value should be fine. If you have no clue whether this guy is capable of nonsense like jamming a worse flush on you in that spot (which is a horrible play), then you might be better off taking the lesser variance line of just calling that big river donkbet.


      Hope it helps.
