      Hero (BB): $61.35

      SB posts SB $0.25, Hero posts BB $0.50

      Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero has A:spade: A:diamond:

      Flop: ($10.25, 2 players) 5:diamond: Q:spade: 6:club:
      Hero bets $6.00, UTG calls $6.00

      Turn: ($22.25, 2 players) K:heart:
      Hero checks, UTG checks

      River: ($22.25, 2 players) 2:spade:
      Hero bets $12.50, UTG raises to $45.02, Hero calls $32.52

      Turn: I could go for second barrel but I wanted to slowplay and trap him.
      River: His shove is def strong but since I checked the turn he could see my half pot bet on the river weak. His 4 B is 15% which is QQ+,AK (0.15*0.18=2.6% range) so I think he would shove QQ and KK preflop which made me think that he was bluffing seeing a bit of weakness on my side. I don't think he would call with KQ pre.

      What you think?

      he has to turn smt like TT or 88 into bluff that you can b/c river.
      I think he isn´t shoving there for value worse hands than KQ
      I would likely b/c against that player since if I check turn my intention is to get all the money in on the turn and best option for that is to c/rai, so if he woudln´t slowplayed on the turn I would get stacked anyway, so I also don´t mind b/c river, just I should have some reasons to think he is turning some of his made hands into bluffs. against really passive players likely b/f is better even with aces than b/c, since they always show you slowplayed set
