Opponent doesn't show aces, kings, queens, or jacks by betting, so a lower pair or overcards are more probable. KQ is the best possibility for him. AQ, AJ, KJ or anything with the second card being lower than a jack give him even lower winning odds. My question is how much should I bet before the turn and before the river to make it not worth his while to continue. What prompted this thread was a hand where my opponent did have KQ, I raised pot after flop and pot after turn, he called both and got a queen on the river. It was a freeroll, so he might have stuck with his hand no matter what to suck out on the river.
