Later Streets
Most players who lead on fifth street will lead on sixth, and most players who call on fifth street will call on sixth.
The only factor that really changes on sixth street is that four scary board cards, such as four-suited or four to a straight, are much more ominous than their three-card progenitors on fifth street. With four cards to a made hand showing, chances are fairly good that a player has the big hand or will make it on the river. (A four flush is always seam-, but a broken sequence with the missing rank burned is much less threatening.) These boards will cause you to slow down with a hand like a high two pair, whereas you would continue to bet if your opponent drew a blank on sixth street. You should expect a -bet from a player with four scary board cards. Even if he doesn't have the hand, a semi-bluff is almost mandatory. The size of the pot and the chance of the player missing on the river are usually enough to justify calling the whole way down.
