      No reason to call on the river I guess. I think he is calling down 2 streets with flushdraw or Full House. Good fold?

      I would just bet/fold river - I would bet more though - like $0.8. I don't think any player can really turn up with a bluff there either so you're beat when you are raised imo.

      Hi,


      I agree he's rarely bluffing, but i'm fine with your original 1/2 pot bet. Villain would have to have a worse Jx to call anyway and we beat don't beat much of these. Or be very suspicious with an even smaller pair. Either way, betting small is a better line in my opinion. NH.


      Hope it helps.
