      Hypothetical question , if he goes all in on the river can i call ? (He was a pretty aggresive player). After his check , is my check behind the optimal line or can i squeeze a little more money with something like a HPSB?

      Hi undercover!

      I think if he goes all-in you cannot call his bet because there are many hands which can beat your top two pair. But since he checked three times to you I think he has a weaker ace or a flushdraw. I think a 1/3 to half potsize bet could be good to get some more value. Other thoughts?

      Good luck at the tables!

      Yea, I agree with you, Pushkin. That should be the right way.

      both players don't have an aggresion factor of 0.0, is probably some misstake.

      Do you have some stats of him on river AF, and check-raising river. think because he calls down, you will be good most of the times. if he has the jack he will raise you probably but if he has an worse 2 pair or pair of aces(AK?) he will call you probably.

      Small bet of 40/50 dollars ?
