Ahhhhh the River…
It’s only one card however it can drastically change the outcome of a hand, not to mention there’s usually a pretty sizable pot at stake.
The world’s best players know how powerful the River can be. They are masters at analyzing key factors, including preflop hand ranges, stack sizes, and how an opponent’s actions through the hand can help figure out what kind of story they are trying to tell us.
They have an arsenal of moves designed to maximize value and cause doubt in an opponent when there are no more outs to come.
