25NL FR Zoom. The board was showing 6A666 for a guaranteed split pot.

Is there any chance of the villian mistakenly folding on the river here? Furthermore, is it normal practice to just check down these river spots, in order to limit the amount of rake on the hand?

In this particular hand I only needed a few FPPs to get to Silverstar and was happy to pay for them.

Hi Roland

I think this spot is relatively unimportant what you do. I would move all-in. There is always the chance that your opponent makes a mistake or a misclick. At this point in the betting there isn't going to be a substantial difference in the rake taken, you might be running up to the cap already, there is already a lot of money in the pot.

Getting VPPs is always a bonus
