      Preflop: Hero is SB with K:spade: , J:spade:
      7 folds, Hero raises to $0.20, BB calls $0.15.

      Flop: ($0.40) J:heart: , 7:club: , 2:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.25, BB raises to $0.55, Hero calls $0.30.

      Turn: ($1.50) 2:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks.

      River: ($1.50) 3:heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks.

      Final Pot: $1.50

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows two-pair, jacks and deuces (Ks Js)
      BB shows (Jd 8d)

      Hero wins with two-pair, jacks and deuces (Ks Js)

      Hit top pair on flop and got re-raised by Villain. Checked down all the way. Should I value bet on river since Villain checked on turn also? If I bet and got re-raised like let's say 3x on river I should fold right?

      Hello cheekopeh,

      Seems to be fine, it's pretty standard move for them to kinda min-raise with TP and sometimes as well with draws. But I'd bet smallish on river for small value. He may still have some weaker pairs or PPs or even Jx which may pay you.

      Best regards.
