It's $2.20 Progressive Super Knock Out. 10mins blind level.

What should I do on river? Is he slowplaying bigger set?

Did I play this hand fine?

Should I shove on river or check or bet small?

Should I take value or should I give value to over-sets or straight. I wish I had purchased flopzilla to see how often they will have a better hand then me on this board.

Hi adi,

This is an easy shove imo, and it's not even close. The villain never has a set in this spot, so the only hand we are losing to is JT. There are many combos of hands that will give us action on the river though, AK, AQ(this probably folds the turn), KQ(might raise the turn), and AsXs. Plus we might get hero called by hands like KJ/KT because the spades missed. Villain only has 77% of pot left in his stack, just move him all in. I'm confident we will get called by worse hands more frequently than we run into the nuts.
