      Is the river always ch/fold?
      Would it make any difference if we had QK (top two pair) here?

      thanks

      Why do you check/raise the flop? You don't want to give away free cards, so I just pot it.

      As played river seems like a fold, a mediocre two pair is not the nuts in a limped pot.

      Agree with falcone, I'd also usually lead out myself on the flop to get value right away and protect the hand.

      As played: Nh. Imo we can't valuebet the river and there are no worse hands he's valuebetting nor does he have bluffs in his range.
