$5 NLHE 6-max: Middle pocket pair river action..
This hand is very similar to a pocket five hand I had yesterday.
Villian:26/19 (86 hands)
What' s your thought on my river spot? I can't always give someone credit for a king on this board, so I call in position with a normal looking c-bet.
When a 10 comes I think in general thats a good card along with the 10 and think I'm still ahead in most cases and the board is now paired + a flush draw out there. I decide to re-raise him and either expect any king to shove me here so I can fold easier and maybe even a 10 happy raising if he doesn't think I have a king so when he "calls" what can really put him on here?
When he checks to me on the river, I'm quite confident I have the best hand in most cases as most 10's + would/should be betting here...OR..he "could" hold a 10 in this spot and think I hold a king. I certainly don't believe a king would play this way. So..what I want, is to either bet him out and get him to fold his 10..
What is an optimal sort of bet on the river to make? Do we bet 3/4 or pot size and hope to get a 10 to fold?
I don't think checking is good as we still can't rule out 7'7s-9'9s here.
How was the streets played and is raising the turn a good spot to even see where we are at?
