      villain unknown; 12/04/2, 17 hands
      villain turn raise looks like either: 1. air; 2. AQ/KQ ( maybe overplaying); 3. Set; 4. 68 that hit a straight (I think it's unlikely given villains tight looking stats and the fact that we have 2 6s already).

      I'm not sure how best to play against the above range. We have about 50% equity against the following range: { AQ, 55,77, KQs, JTo, A5s, Ad9d} which includes some value hands, some draws and some air.

      If villain's range is more polarised (air+AQ/sets), we have about 21 % against the value part of the range. since we only need 21% for breakeven call, calling villains turn raise looks fine.

      River is most difficult. We hit our straight for the nuts ( excepting 68) but I don't know whether we are better off checking to induce from bluffs/AQ or value betting ourselves. If we bet, say, 1/2pot I think we get called by AQ but all the bluffs fold.
      when we check, we miss value only if AQ/KQ checks behind.

      villain is strong here.
      => pot river (villain has 23$ behind). You get called by sets and AQ very likely.

      What did you do and what did villain have, if seen?

      Best regards,

      I also think river shove is fine
      He doesn´t really have there too many times AQ and AQ would check back that river close to 100% and he would likely call your river shove with two pair or set that he might also check behind. SO putting money in yourself is fine, only reason to c/rai is if you think villain is bluffing turn and would also fire river
