Re: 1/2 top two VS aggro

I know you're looking for a straight answer, and I'll get to it. But here is what I suggest you do.

Create a range, and write it down. count card combos. Then figure out which combos would call a $290 river bet, and how often (based on potential river cards).

Next, take that same range, and figure out how many combos would call $100 on the turn and $190 on the river, and how often.

Then do your EV calculations, and decide which line is best.

Hint...checking is bad. You have $290 behind and you would like to get all of it in. His range is riddled with pair+broadway draw hands like KJ, or AT. You can not give him a free card.....ever.
