      Hi,


      Again, hard to play it differently. It's conceivable that CO could show up with 22/44 maybe QQ sometimes since he's position and the board isn't that drawy, but his most likely hands are still KQ/AQ.

      Against certain nits that actually fold the river with those Qx hands, you can actually check the river and fold when they bet when you get a bad feeling, because they're never valuebetting Qx and they can't have bust draws really. But that requires you knowing your villain is very tight and it's probably going to be a mistake when in doubt to not value-shove there. NH.


      Hope it helps.
