That's the problem about these low cards. We also stacked him purely because of being OOP.
Think of it this way, if our villain was drawing with Ac he isn't calling the river. But perhaps checking the river could induce a bluff.
We could save money as well.

Gotta mix these cards in our range when playing cash game if we want action and to be a winning player. Those hands are probably my biggest winner in cash because I represent premiums with them, then when I hit a flush or a straight or 2 pairs its very unexpected.
There is absolutely nothing I would change in my range early position. I either play that garbage hand or I have the goods, but I can't only play the goods.
I'm never checking the river. So often here villain has a pair or a set or a straight. I'm losing money on all these pay outs if he chickened to value because of the flush.
I'm thinking I might be out of the line with my bet sizing. Maybe if I small balled I would've end up saving a bit of money, I'm just wondering.
Thanks for your opinion on it though

re: Poker & $25 NLHE Full Ring: Cooler or out of line?
Yeah well checking calling river is saving you money in most cases.
and folding pre
Also the gap between his vpip and pfr suggests he could be a touch passive so his raise is so strong on river. SO we have to fold there. He doesn't look like someone who would just spaz out here with air.
If we did check though and somehow villain got there with his 9.... he could then bet out as well. But yeh because of the monotone flop... people wont get too carried away unless they have Ac draw.

I think check calling loses more value than saving money.
In most cases we are ahead at that point on the river. he either hit a straight and is out of line. hit a set and is out of line, or has a flush.
I think with all possibilities, odds are we should shove if we can...
