Hi dirt,

I don't think this is an auto-call tbh, I think we should be folding this weak a pair quite a bit to his pot sized river bet. I know he doesn't look super strong when he checks the turn, but he can be value betting slightly better hands like JT or 99 or A8, or even thinking he's bluffing with a hand like 97 or A7.

One thing that may be useful is the read. We don't have a stat based one yet, beyond that he's voluntarily played 3/4 hands preflop, once by raising himself. But based on his stack it seems like one of those hands at least went to showdown, with him doubling up. So what did we observe him show down, and how did he play that hand? Maybe that will help us intuit if we should lean towards looking him up here or not.

Thanks Dave. He checked the flop as the aggressor also. His line was R, XC, X, B. Felt like one of those spots where he has nothing. I'll look at his other showdown hands and see what he turned up with and make some notes.
