I would like some opinions on the way I played this hand.

is there a better way to shake off the fish or was I bluffed or did I fold at the right time ?

This is a Zoom table with no notes or reads, I was playing 4 tables at once.?????

Thanks Chuckkky

Hi chuckkky,

I like a bet/fold line on the turn and river here rather than checking the river vs. an unknown. We will get called down surprisingly light, most of which will just check down the river behind us so we get no value from worse hands. If we get raised, it's an easy fold, much more so than checking and facing a bet. As played I think folding to the pot sized bet is right, this looks like value, but I prefer bet/folding about .40c here as I think he 'll call with his worse hands more often than bet them small for us, and it prevents us from being bluffed as it is very hard to bluff raise this river card vs our range when we fire again on the river (villain has to be concerned legitimately that we have an ace).

Thanks Dave,

I did consider betting the river to make it harder for him to bluff,
but i just had a feeling i was beat.
I will try bet/fold next time.

Thanks Again chuckkky
