      Known players:

      0,25/0,5 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.89 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with 3:diamond: , 3:club:
      Hero raises to $1,75, 3 folds, BB calls $1,25.

      Flop: ($3,75) 8:spade: , 6:diamond: , 4:heart: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $2, BB calls $2,00.

      Turn: ($7,75) 3:heart: (2 players)
      BB bets $5,5, Hero calls $5,50.

      River: ($18,75) J:spade: (2 players)
      BB bets $15,5, Hero calls $15,50.

      Final Pot: $49,75

      He can get 99-1010, may be JJ, but I don't think that re-raise is good on the turn. What should I have to do on the river after his so big bet? May I fold river with bottom set against him?

      I would definitely not fold the river.

      75 and 52 should not be in his range so you don't really have to be afraid of straights.
      I'm still undecided between calling and shoving the river, but imo he could just fold a lot of overpairs therefore I think calling is probably the best play.


      Btw you could make it slightly bigger on the flop - you try to rep TT+ here, so bet 2.5-3 "for value".
