      Was quite sure villian didn't have Kx judging from his play. Wanted to bet river but it was an UTG raise. So I want to keep my damage minimum.

      Hello ragney,

      Checking back on river is likely the best play anyways, there aren't just that many worse hands which may Call you. Although if you put him on some kind of very fishy player then sure, you might even consider betting there very thing like $2. But checking back is totally fine.

      Best regards.
