      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      SB:
      $8.70
      BB:

      CO (Hero):
      $9.19
      BU:
      $3.65


      Preflop: Hero is CO with Q, A.
      2 folds, MP1 calls $0.10, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.40, 2 folds, BB calls $0.30, MP1 calls $0.30.

      Flop: ($1.25) 8, A, 4 (3 players)
      BB checks, MP1 checks, Hero bets $0.80, BB calls $0.80, MP1 calls $0.80.

      Turn: ($3.65) 9 (3 players)
      BB checks, MP1 checks, Hero bets $2.40, BB folds, MP1 calls $2.40.

      River: ($8.45) K (2 players)
      MP1 checks, Hero checks.

      Final Pot: $8.45.

      My raise on the flop should have been a bit bigger to get more protection, but my question is what would be the right move on the river? BB and MP1 are both unknown players.
      Thanks in forward :)

      Hello miku89,

      First of all, I'd likely always play with 100BB, therefore I'd add to full stack. About the game on flop, you aren't raising, you are just betting and yeah, I'd tend to bet bigger there, ~$1. Otherwise you can likely bet on river like $2 or something similar.

      Best regards.
