Hi guys,

Here is a hand where I do have issues. Please could you analyse my hand.

Stats on villain: 16/11/1.5

The river I was considering a check, but if villain bets pot, I would probably end up folding. So villain could pretty much bluff river - maybe not this villain though

So instead I decided a bet, which could look weak, but didn't want to invest too mch if he has it. I did bet a weird amount.

I think on the river bet/fold (Maybe depending on sizing) is the optimal line but I would just go with a standard 45-60% of pot because he is calling and most likely not raising with overpairs to the board that are worse than ours. So we can still get value. When the third spade hits, if he shoves or makes a big raise on this river, then I am happy to fold because he looks quite passive.
