$4 NLHE 6-max: Can I call the river here?
Villian Stats (VPIP/PFR/AF):
Just wanted to get a line check on this hand and advice on the river. I'm not always too sure about how to play pocket pairs and thinking perhaps I could have made a small bet on the turn as well?
After the fish called my flop bet I wasn't too bothered but having the tight player call it as well put me on edge about the King on the turn.
What really bothers me about the hand is that the fishy player checks both the flop and turn and makes a 3/4 pot bet on the river. It's not the first time I saw him do it either. He checked two streets and bet a 3/4 or pot size bet on the river a couple of times before making me think he's just trying to scare others off. Perhaps he was doing it this hand but I just can't come to that decision. The only thing I can think of is that perhaps he hit two pair or somehow a straight with that river card. Or maybe just hit a King on the turn and checked it as for some reason plenty of fish do...
Whatever it was, is there any way I can call that bet or do I have to accept defeat on that one?
