      A few times recently I've had an overpair to the board, with an opponent calling the flop and turn. With position, I've gone for pot-control on the river, but would you bet say 1/2 pot on the river at these stakes?

      Although I was happy enough with the play, am I missing value by not betting the river with position?

      EDIT - I had no reads on opponent

      Hello philhellmutt,

      I'd even bet bigger on flop ~$0,14 and as well on turn ~$0,34. Seems that you have some kind of leak with bet sizings, might even make them too small and giving good odds for the opponent to Call. I'd advice you to post more hands to fix those kind of leaks and as well others.

      About the river I am still betting for value there, even if he had 2pairs there then now we have even stronger 2pairs, I'd bet like $0,50 there.

      Best regards.
