      Howdy,

      I have two choices on river - call or fold. My decision would be based on what type of player he is. Usually players are either not vbetting thin enough or are just bluffing/betting hell out of you. So if you know he's capable of bluffing with missed draws/low pp or stuff like that - calling 1/2 pot bet is reasonable. But against players who shows some sign of common sense, are playing passive, nitty and overall are not going to bluff often enough to make this profitable (you have to be good approx. 1/4 of times when you call this) I would just fold it, because you don't beat anything but bluffs just because they won't bet TT/Jx/99 etc. for value.

      Everything else seems fine to me.

      Good luck!
