      What could be the best way, how to play this hand?
      On river it is still a call?
      Better on river go for check/call?

      Hello Rufus433,

      Preflop: Raise it bigger, $0,08.

      As played
      Flop: Since the board is that drawy, I would even consider betting it pot for bigger protection.
      Turn: Also the same goes for turn, betting near pot, at least $0,40.
      River: I'd actually rather Check/Call it here, since we don't really get Called by a lot worse and also we give room for missed FD to try to bluff. As played it's kinda close, depends on the opponent, if he is more to the side that he is very passive then I'd rather fold it there. One thing is for sure, that he ain't bluffing there, he likely has there a made hand. Also since we kill a lot of combos, which may put him on 2pair type of hand, I'd rather fold it. Only reasonable hand, could be is KT, which we beat. So what did he have?

      Best regards.
