Hand from a little earlier and just want to check the line.

I think pre is standard, I squeeze for value.

I think AK is a good hand to cbet here, I could be wrong, but I assume that when he calls that his range is mostly Ax hands, and mid to low pocket pairs. A lot of which I can get to fold and I often have outs.

When I get called I think his range is still mostly pocket pairs. There arent really any draws out there.

I check behind on the turn as I am not sure if he will fold a pair, if he has slowplayed a monster, and I reckon I still have outs here.

River play, the board has paired, if he continued with underpairs to the board and I am now ahead but if he is pot controlling the likes of JJ then I doubt I can get him to fold that. He will check call,

Most importantly, I dont need to bluff to win the hand.

Is river a value bet or a check behind?

Hi bhoy,

What would you be targeting for value? Do you think he's calling you with king high?

Check and show it down.

Edit: Hand is fine up to that point.

He's highly likely a fish based on starting stack so it's possible they do call with worse but I accept it would be paper thin value.

I did check and show it down, he had pocket 5's, he should have folded pre and on the flop unless he has some sort of read on me but given were seemingly unknown to each other I don't see that he has anything on me. I guess he thought I had AK.
