      If you bet again on river and you are against a reasonable opponent , the only worse hands that will call you are JT and J9. I like check/call there to allow them to bluff their busted draws.

      Nah, I don't like c/c river. I just pot the flop (6$), bet big on the turn (20$) and bet again for value on the river. With my line there is 64$ in the pot on the river instead of just 40$, you see how much difference this makes?

      And then there are hands that might call your riverbet but just one draw that missed and even then you can't be sure that he will bluff this, so just keep firing.
