You have the nuts right now (unless he's on KT also). Just flat call like you've been doing this hand. Anything else looks suspicious. Your only possible worry is the board pairing ln the river and making him a boat.

I'd raise a little. Big hands want big pots, so build the size of the pot. You want all his money in the middle so start getting some of it there now.

Call but take time doing it. Make your opponent think your hand is weaker than it is. If he bets on the river, shove.

I would raise - try to build up pot right now, you may not get any action on river. A small raise here will keep him interested.

villian has two pair, possibly a set and will call almost any bet at this level, but if your looking for more money here, type in "I'm making you pay for your draw" and bet huge..lol.
Seriously, a pot sized bet will suffice.

If you let them see the river, you will drown in that river. BIG raise, take it down now!

This is great! A wide variety of responses. They all have merit. Hmmm, what to do, what to do.

What to do is pretty simple. You want his whole stack here, we don't know his hand but we can guess he's not on a draw. With his turn bet he has put $1.79 in this pot and has $3.16 left. Turn bet is $1.31. You can't just call this and hope to get the $3.16 on the river, because unless he has a set that likely won't happen (if he has a set you'll get his whole stack no matter how you play this), plus after the river comes out you are first to act, so you need to think ahead. If you reraise this another $1.31 he'll probably call and have $1.85 left, and that will make him pot committed on the river for his remaining $1.85, so you can just go ahead and bet out on the river if he just smooth calls (pot will be $8.43) and doesn't shove the turn after your raise.
