      Known players:

      0,05/0,1 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant.Base 0.96 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with K:heart: , Q:spade:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0,40, MP3 calls $0,40, 4 folds.

      Flop: ($0,95) A:diamond: , J:diamond: , 8:spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0,65, MP3 calls $0,65.

      Turn: ($2,25) 5:spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 checks.

      River: ($2,25) Q:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 bets $0,5, Hero calls $0,50.

      Final Pot: $3,25

      I think pretty often he has small A or a flush here, so I don't think bet folding would be good. Am I wrong?
      As played I think I really can't fold to that small bet. He could have KQ, KJ, JT, QT or something...

      Hello Oly0909,

      I'd rather say that he is betting for value on river for the given reason that he has such a small stack and often times they just don't risk in such situations, unless they are a maniacs. As actually the AF says, but it's only for so small sample size, therefore I might even consider just folding it on river. :(

      Best regards.
