      Known players:

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.85 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A:spade: , Q:heart:
      5 folds, Hero raises to $0.06, BB calls $0.04.

      Flop: ($0.12) A:club: , T:club: , 9:spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.08, BB calls $0.08.

      Turn: ($0.28) 6:heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks.

      River: ($0.28) 8:spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.1, BB folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.28

      Preflop, flop: standard I hope.
      Turn: I check for pot control. I don't think enough worse hands would call a 2nd barrel - I would need him to have exactly AJ. If he had bet I would have played check/call.
      River: Some draws completed, although they are unlikely (7x or exactly QJ). After the turn I look weak, so I think that if I check the river he might bet, which would put me in a difficult spot. So I decide to bet small but would fold to a raise.

      Ok to play check/call turn?
      Ok to bet/fold river or would check/call be better?

      Hello member001,

      I'd definitely Bet the river to get value from any kind worse hands and also draw. Otherwise at least bet river for value, there are a lot worse pairs which may Call us and if he decides to raise, then we have an easy fold.

      Best regards.
