      I'd like to know if it was a good bet on the river, or I should've just checked.

      BTN is a tight player, usually passive pre-flop, but agressive post-flop.

      Manual Hand Convertion, don't get scared with unusual things.

      No Limit Hold'em
      Blinds: $0.10/$0.25
      Stacks
      Hero: $18.35
      BTN: $31.00

      Pre-flop: (9 players) Hero is BB with 2 :diamond: 5 :diamond:
      A few players call, and we see a 5-handed flop.

      Flop: 9 :diamond: A :diamond: Q :diamond: ($1.25, 5 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $1.00, UTG calls, UTG+2 folds, BTN calls, SB folds.

      Turn: A :spade:( $4.25, 3 players)
      Hero bets $3.40, UTG+2 calls, BTN calls.

      River: K :spade:( $14.45, 3 players)
      Hero bets $13.70 and is all-in, UTG+2 folds, BTN calls.

      Hi Faye6891!

      I would play check/call here on the river so that busted draws have the opportunity to bluff.

      Good luck at the tables!

      I'd usually just check/call also, but since there were two other players, I thought maybe one of them could have an ace and pay me off. But I don't think someone with an ace would raise on the river though. That's why I pushed. Was it wrong? Or you think check/call is a better play even with two other players still in the hand?

      it´s improbably that a player bluffs in a 3 Handed pot + a ass will call your push, but probably check behind.
