River Value Bets (1) - IP vs. tight opponent

by MiiWiin

For tight opponents, who tend to defend passively, you can definitely estimate certain ranges. This player doesn't 3-bet a lot and plays rather passively postflop.

Whether or not you can place another value bet on the river depends on certain assumptions. Can villain still call this river with a worse hand?

Good luck!
