VIllain is 62/7
I guess this is a fold every time even though I have good pot odds? Because hes never bluffing and I doubt he is doing that with AT.

Yeah never a bluff unless you've some read on the guy pocket.

I thought villain was going to show up with jq of diamonds there. standard bet/fold on the river, well played except for the call. I'd even bet slightly bigger on the flop to get more in by the river against villains likely bottom pair/ 96 suited etc

Remember one of the golden rules for the micros, people just don't bluff raise the river.

Hi pockettones,

Against a 62/7 I feel calling a small raise is meh, someone with those stats can be overplaying AT but yea I agree that we would not see a bluff in this spot so the question is only whether they can raise us with a worse hand and why raise it OTR and not earlier in the hand? The backdoor diamonds kind of worry me a bit because they can call turn with a hand that either floated the flop and picked up a FD or called the flop with a pair and picked up FD and now raising river for value.
