      Villain: 42/0/1.6 during 39 hands. WSD/W$SD 33/20, very weak station.
      No info about shorty.

      SB: $2.01
      BB: $10.06
      UTG: $10.66
      MP: $9.35

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is BTN with Q:spade: A:heart:
      UTG raises to $0.35, MP calls $0.35, 1 fold, Hero calls $0.35, SB calls $0.30, 1 fold

      Flop: ($1.50) T:club: Q:club: T:spade: (4 players)
      SB bets $1.66 all in, UTG folds, MP calls $1.66, Hero calls $1.66

      Turn: ($6.48) 2:heart: (3 players - 1 is all in)
      MP checks, Hero checks

      MP checks, Hero bets $4, MP raises to $7.34 all in, Hero calls $3.34

      Was my value bet on the river correct, or rather just check it behind?

      Hello Bliausmas,

      Rather make the bet smaller there like $3 or something similar and then you as well have room for a fold. When he shoves there you will be more often behind rather than win a hand.

      Best regards.

      Well the shove came really unexpected (deuces full :f_biggrin: ), but I guess check behind wouldn't be a good option, because most of the time we'd just lose value by checking?

      Anyways, many thanks for a help with those very tricky situations. Yesterday evening I spent a couple of hours analyzing what hands cause the most problems, and the big winner was AQ, with AJ taking the second place :)

      Nah, I guess I am still throwing a bet on river for value but likely smaller one to have room for a easy fold.

      And yes, AQ/AJ are rather hard hands to play. They are often overplayed as TPTK or whatsoever.
