Hi, this hand was at the start of the tournament, it was 27 players where 18 got paid. 3k for 1st, 120 for 10-18.

No data on the players.

Since it took 10 weeks of tournament to qualify for this i believe all players are at least average.



My question is if i should just fold on the river, or his range could still alow me to make the call ?

preflop: opp std raises from mid position, you've got a pkt pair in BB, so no problems seeing their raise.

flop: you get a bottom full house. You can check/raise, but I like leading out here. That way, the opp won't get a free card if they check behind. You got lucky and they bet so that you could raise. Them calling the raise puts their range on an overpair or Jx.

turn: I like the lead value bet here. The opp's most likely got a J, so make them pay to draw at a larger full house. The opp calling it really narrows thier range to Jx.

river: sick, sick card putting a 2nd hand on the board. The opp's range basically is Jx here, so there is basically nothing that you can beat. I like the check here, but when the opp makes a value bet (which they should do with the largest full house available, you need to be folding and saving your chips for a better situation.
