      Villain is playing pretty aggro so i think my pre flop call is OK. When he calls my flop raise i put him on a pair + draw maybe.....

      When he checks then bets so small on the river, i'm struggling to get away from the hand with the odds offered......

      Hi,


      It's fine except I probably wouldn't call the river against a reg, which I assume he is given how he played the early streets. The problem is this: he needs either an overpair or a big diamond to call the flop, so comes the turn, the only stuff you beat are now KK+ without a diamond, and I just don't believe he'll bet with them on the river. Since he bet so small I guess it might be possible for him to just blockbet these, but really I just don't believe it, it should be pretty obvious to him on the turn that he just doesn't beat anything anymore.

      If you put more stocks in him trying to blockbet the river calling is okay, you're getting 5:1 after all.


      Hope it helps.
