      Howdy,

      I think your play overall till the river is fine, but that river call is debatable.

      People make strange plays with a lot of hands, but this board didn't allow any FD/SD he may bluff with, it has two high cards - A and K, so c/c, c/c and shove seems like very strong line to take. It seems like line to take if you don't wanna miss value on last street, because your opp may check back.
      Against unknown I tend to fold there. We split against almost all Aces and we basically have to be sure he's able to bet Kx like this, but I usually can't make such an assumptions against unknowns.

      Good luck!

      Hi,


      Agreed, unless he's totally merging some pair into a river jam which happens but quite rarely, we're only looking at gutshots that floated twice and pure flop floats with random diamonds that made a backdoor flushdraw on the turn.

      It's a pretty thin range to bluff-catch against given villain's line, often you'll see 9x that just sucks at extracting value or wants to be trappy, so they c/c until they realize on the river it's risky to c/c so they shove.


      Hope it helps.
