      Ah, Pokerstars 250bb tables. Oh how I fear you.

      So, after I made the valuebet on the river, my opponent tanked. I knew him to be trappy, and started hating my valuebet, as I would have to fold to a shove. Knowing what I knew about him (his pfr is 5 over about 150 hands), is this a good spot to just check the hand down?

      Should I bet turn a little stiffer?

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      MP3 can´t really rep anything else than 77/TT maybe sometimes 55 if he is going to c/rai
      And most players doesn´t really have balls to that so i think b/f river is ok, but against some opponents I think b/c is also ok
      So yes I´d like your river bet since he´d call down with pp-s, which he has and you won´t get showed that often than you think
