      Villain (UTG): $2.87
      UTG+1: $1.88
      MP: $2.73
      MP+1: $1.38
      LP: $1.67
      Hero (CO): $5.04
      BTN: $2.40
      SB: $1.77
      BB: $2.54

      SB posts SB $0.01, BB posts BB $0.02

      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero has Q:club: Q:heart:

      Villain raises to $0.10, fold, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.30, fold, fold, fold, Villain calls $0.20

      Flop: ($0.63, 2 players) A:diamond: K:club: 2:heart:
      Villain checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($0.63, 2 players) 9:diamond:
      Villain checks, Hero checks

      River: ($0.63, 2 players) Q:spade:
      Villain checks, Hero bets $0.30, Villain folds

      I didn't c-bet here as I was fearing Villain to call me PF with Ax or Kx, and thus wanted c/r me. On the turn I was still afraid of a c/r, but I maybe should have bet anyway.

      At the river, I started to believe I was definitely ahead. How much should have I then value bet in order to have Villain call me here?

      Hello dondiego2000,

      Your play is totally fine, our Check back on flop is to get paid of from worse PPs with what he did Call us preflop and turn you could also likely just Check back, it ain't wrong. On river your betsize is perfect since he could still Call with some PPs but what he didn't, nice hand.

      Best regards.
