      Cake Poker No-Limit Hold'em, $0.10 BB (8 handed)

      UTG+1 ($10.81)
      MP1 ($10.30)
      MP2 ($10.10)
      Hero (CO) ($10)
      Button ($12.09)
      SB ($8.14)
      BB ($10.60)
      UTG ($9.70)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with K:spade: , K:diamond:
      3 folds, MP2 calls $0.10, Hero bets $0.50, 1 fold, SB calls $0.45, 1 fold, MP2 calls $0.40

      Flop: ($1.60) A:spade: , 2:diamond: , J:heart: (3 players)
      SB checks, MP2 checks, Hero bets $1, SB calls $1, 1 fold

      Turn: ($3.60) 5:club: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($3.60) 2:club: (2 players)
      SB bets $2.10, Hero folds

      SB is unknown (no stats). I think that with anything less then Ax he should check/call, and his bet looks like value bet to me. Am I wrong?

      Hello Oly0909,

      You may consider even Checking behind on flop, since there aren't that many worse hands which may Call us or either we don't know if the opponents are that loose that they are able to play Jx here. Therefore just Check behind and hope to see a cheap showdown. Otherwise he is betting for value on river and the fold is likely the safest.

      Best regards.
