It's $5.50 Red Spade Open satellite with 10mins blind level and 1500 starting stack.

What to do on river? And should I have check the turn?
I checked the turn to keep pot size small incase I am beat already and also if he plans to bluff river I can call him. But his bet size on river looks like value bet to me.

Should I call here or fold?

Hi Adi

Easy fold imo

The only hands you beat are bluffs like miss diamond draws because it's unlikely that villain is betting 8x or 10x for value. If you call and lose you'll be in shove/fold mode with just 9 big blinds. I'd definitely wait for a better spot.

Cheers, Chris.
