Opponent is 33/7, so probably recreational player.

Should i be betting the river for value from Ax, lower two pair ?

Hi Justin,

I like value betting this guy with 2 pair on the river, but I'm not sure what Ax he can have, it doesn't make much sense... what Ax holdings would he donk/call the flop with? The nut flush draw is the prime candidate but we block that... The next likely candidates would be A2/A3, maybe of clubs, but that seems quite loose/spewy in this spot. A4/A5 maybe. Again, it's loose. I think it's more likely he's going to have KQ/KJ and consider hero calling us for a nominal bet. So I think a smaller river bet is in order, maybe like 2.50, and fold to a shove.

Well, recreational players like to play A2,A3,A4. Donk on the flop might be with A4,A5,when he hits middle/bottom pair. that's my thinking.
