      Hi,


      River is a pretty standard fold unless you know he's nuts, very few players will actually shove a hand worse than QJ when the flush gets there unless they are bluffing machines.

      I might even suggest folding the turn, because truthfully we know we can't call the river without a read that he's full of it often, and his turn bet sizing doesn't really hint at him giving up on the river ever. So calling $1.65 knowing we'll have to fold very often on the river regardless is just leaking money. Keep in mind this is probably too tight against randomly aggressive fish at microstakes, but it's a sound principle that will be useful to prevent you from just leaking money away against tight fish and tags at higher limits.


      Hope it helps.
