      I played passively until river
      Top pair with good kicker, not big hand but the big pot
      Maybe he thought i was bluffing

      Is it wrong to play such hands passively?
      Is it good such reraise on the river?
      As I saw later he was semi bluffing...

      I think the min raise on the river is begging for a small reraise but i think you raised so high that only hands that beat you will call. As it happened he calls you with just a 9, got to love NL2.

      Hello bkevk09,

      Preflop: I often times even raise here since I take such a min-raise as 2limps. But of course it depends on the opponent.

      As played
      Postflop: Somehow I don't really like the raise on river, there aren't that many worse hands to Call you. Rather raise it on flop or turn than on river.

      Best regards.
