      Poker Stars, $0.08/$0.16 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 4 Players

      BB: $16 (100 bb)
      CO: $7.42 (46.4 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $17.33 (108.3 bb) 16/13/14.0/4.3/23/112
      SB: $8.63 (53.9 bb) 38/16/1.5/7.1/32/52

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with A A
      CO folds, Hero raises to $0.48, SB calls $0.40, BB folds

      Flop: ($1.12) 8 2 T (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.80, SB calls $0.80

      Turn: ($2.72) 9 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $1.76, SB calls $1.76

      River: ($6.24) 8 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      Did I miss out on value by checking the river? I checked cause I don't think he'll call me with much and if he's hit something then he'll raise me. He might be on a FD and will definitely fold to a river bet. He could also have been on a straight draw and will fold and if he has completed his straight then he's definitely raising here. However hands like Tx would probably pay me off on the river. I think I'm being too passive with these top pair hands and I usually end up missing value by skipping one street of betting so wanted your opinion.
