      Full Tilt - $0.02 NL - Holdem - 9 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3: http://www.pokertracker.com

      Hero (MP+1): $1.97
      LP: $2.38
      CO: $2.06
      BTN: $0.98
      SB: $2.12
      BB: $0.79
      UTG: $1.54
      Villain (UTG+1): $2.04
      MP: $2.00

      SB posts SB $0.01, BB posts BB $0.02

      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero has A:diamond: Q:diamond:

      UTG calls $0.02, Villain calls $0.02, fold, Hero raises to $0.12, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, UTG calls $0.10, Villain calls $0.10

      Flop: ($0.39, 3 players) 8:spade: 3:diamond: 2:spade:
      UTG checks, Villain checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($0.39, 3 players) J:diamond:
      UTG checks, Villain checks, Hero checks

      River: ($0.39, 3 players) 5:diamond:
      UTG checks,Villain bets $0.39, Hero raises ???

      I played this hand passively, especially on the turn where I could have bet for a semi-bluff.

      How much should I raise on the river to get maximum value from Villain?

      Hello dondiego2000,

      Shove it in after his bet, he is very likely going to Call anyways since he made such a potsize bet, otherwise I don't mind just checking behind turn since they are so loose on NL2 that I expect very often someone to Call there. But one plan would be yes, to bet the turn.

      Best regards.
