      I checked behind on the turn to try and get him to bet the river with worse hands. And he did such a big bet on the river that I felt most of the time it will be a bluff.

      Would there be an arguement for betting the turn for more value? Or raising the river?

      My reasoning for just calling on the river was that no hand that I beat would call, the only hands that would call would be a set or straight.

      As played, river is just a call.

      BUT, we should definitely bet the turn. We have value against worse Q's, 78, 67, 77, 88, 99.

      People will be calling REALLY loose in NL2. The key for beating this limit is to value bet, value bet, value bet.

      I'd bet flop, turn and river here :evil:
