    If you don’t find the answer you’re looking for you might want to visit the 2+2 forums. They have excellent strategy discussions, just make sure to avoid the nonsense that floods the rest of the forum.

    Here’s a link:

    Jack beats you here but would this other player be calling you all along with an inside straight draw, needing a Q? So many people will tell you that you have to finish strong here and you were playing scared by checking on the river. The thing that worries me the most here is what would you do if he would have bet big into you here? You’re leaving yourself wide open for a bluff and by betting it strong here this is less likely. I’m thinking that though if I’m checking and I’m calling here anyway but if you’re not thinking this way then it could be a problem.

    I’d repeat the bet on the turn here and see what happens. Like I said even at this low level I can’t see this person chasing the queen all the way down. If you make it more expensive than this you probably won’t get called unless you’re behind, and since you got called with the 6 on the turn chances are the player will throw another 6 your way with a pair.

    This is a pretty scary river but another 6 bucks isn’t a bad move and what you don’t want to do in these situations is think you’ve blown the bet if you get raised enough to have to toss it. You always want to look at these things in terms of what would happen EV wise if you did it 10 times including the risk of being bluffed out and all things considered the check isnt’ real bad but a bet here is better.
