    I am fine with the river value bet, especially if the opponent tends to play straightforwardly. If you get raised, it is a rough spot where you should probably fold, but I think the river bet is great against most opponents. If for some reason you think his range is mostly busted draws (due to a live read, I know this is online), then checking becomes great.
