      Could be he was bluffing and didn't want you to see the hand. I think it could have been he was chasing a draw.

      I'd say he's a really bad player and didn't know it was free to check, or he seems to know what he's doing and wants to hide his hand, not giving you any more information, knowing for sure he's beat.

      Most chances it wa a bluff he did not want you to see but it could also just be a misclick :f_biggrin:

      Hey wiselogo7,

      About the hand, you have to raise more preflop, 0.16$ should do the trick and then you would also have smaller stack in comparison to the pot postflop and it would be easier to play.

      As played, I would also c-bet flop bigger like 0.18$ and shove turn.

      As for the question, I believe it's usually a misclick that villain folded instead of checked the river, but could also a hand he didn't want you to see, however I think this would happen less often. There's not such strategy to fold river when it's checked to you.
