Mathematical problem
This is one of the standard mathematical problems. Even can be said that one of the easiest. In this issue, the question is whether to work or do not value bet on river.
We have: Kh: 9h. HU game. PF raise 3xBB, Whelan called. Flop: Kc: QC: 2s Villanova check, and 4.5 xBB, Villanova calls Turn: 4h Villanova check, we 10xBB, Villanova calls River: 6h Villanova check, We?

I guess maybe his point on the math part is calculating how large of a value bet villian will call? The information here isn't nearly enough to make that determination though, and math alone certainly isn't enough.
Heck, from looking at this, for all we know the guy is slow playing aces. Or he could be chasing a draw. Or a maniac who raised with Q2 and hit two pair.

lol...Dude when you're puzzled about something and have only top pair then I'd suggest you check, I mean he called you this far and you have a chance of winning so why would you want to lose it to a reraise?(Or lose more for that matter)...
But my opinion is this: He's a bad player who had something like a straight draw or a flush draw and kept buying it until the river where he obviously didn't get his 9 or his A or his club so he checked...He might be a little more tricky and want to see what you range is! So he might have something like AQ and freezing you to death by his calls so he can see what kind of player you are(I mean you can pay for that kind of information). That's opinion...as for Math: ???
