1. Line check for me?
2. Guess what he holds? Don't cheat, think about it first and then look at the spoiler

Villain has Tx obvo
I think you need a read not to c-bet this board. It's quite dry and villain looks like a terrible player, so we should easily get the normal 60% folds.
After the flop, I think this is absolutely fine. Just need to be able to read the river and fold when draws come in. I assume non-draw rivers, you're calling a normal sized river bet right?
EDIT - I see villain had AA. Clearly he won the maximum!

Awww man, don't spoil it
I had no reads but his timing made me suspicious, I have nothing here and I am in position.
I would call a small bet since I actually thought he has nothing. I didn't bet since I can't get calls from air so yeah.
To put it mildly, I was shocked when I saw his hand. I suppose I shouldn't be anymore but some things never get old.

Kinda like throwing the grenade pin instead of the grenade itself.

re: Poker & $2 NLHE Full Ring: Insane hand from Lower Microville
Normally I would but something in his timing made me suspicious there. By the river I thought I was imagining things and he really had nothing, but didn't bet since I have air and he only calls with something.
