      Fold river. Kx and Qx beat you. Plus bet looks really valueish.

      Hi,


      The reason you call the turn is usually some mix of him possibly betting Tx/9x for no reason, which is possible but unlikely on such a board, and him betting flushdraw, which not every fish will do. If you think he can have flushdraws and bluff them on the river I like your line, otherwise I'd likely just fold the turn, he has a random Kx/8x too often for us to bother calling without knowing that he can semibluff flushdraws.


      Hope it helps.
