    Hello Dexter!
    I would not bet this river if i wasn't b'f'ing (or b/calling). If ur really unsure and player is fairly unknown then it is def acceptable to value bet less lightly.

    But all in all I like b/folding here vs a relative unknown. You bet a good amount. I see too many people betting way to small ehre, thus inducing vs an unknown in a spot where they have no idea what to do if faced with a re raise. So either check or bet a proper amount as u did.
