      A general question based on the following hand:

      Full Tilt - $0.05 NL RUSH - Holdem - 9 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      BTN: $6.94
      SB: $4.24
      BB: $0.85
      UTG: $5.00
      UTG+1: $3.68
      MP: $9.06
      Hero (MP+1): $1.95
      LP: $4.71
      CO: $2.17

      SB posts SB $0.02, BB posts BB $0.05

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero has A:diamond: A:spade:

      fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.15, fold, fold, fold, SB calls $0.13, fold

      Flop: ($0.35, 2 players) 8:spade: T:club: 4:club:
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.20, SB calls $0.20

      Turn: ($0.75, 2 players) 2:heart:
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.55, SB calls $0.55

      River: ($1.85, 2 players) 8:heart:
      SB checks, Hero ???

      Villian check/calls the flop and turn with possible flush and straight draws, and checks the river on a card that pairs the board.
      Do I just check behind here - from the way he has played it's probally either a busted draw, which will fold, or a slow played set which will cost me money, or should I bet again for value from top pair or a worse overpair ?

      Edit: Also what about if I had a lower overpair, such as JJ in this situation ?

      Edit 2: Here's another example

      Full Tilt - $0.05 NL RUSH - Holdem - 9 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      UTG: $2.00
      UTG+1: $2.10

      LP: $8.59
      CO: $2.53
      BTN: $5.13
      SB: $2.23
      BB: $3.43

      SB posts SB $0.02, BB posts BB $0.05

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero has J:club: J:heart:

      fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.15, fold, fold, fold, fold, SB calls $0.13, BB calls $0.10

      Flop: ($0.45, 3 players) 8:heart: 6:spade: 7:heart:
      SB checks, BB checks, Hero bets $0.30, fold, BB calls $0.30

      Turn: ($1.05, 2 players) 8:diamond:
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.75, BB calls $0.75

      River: ($2.55, 2 players) 9:spade:
      BB checks, Hero ???

      Hey pyure,

      Please keep the thread clean with just 1 hand :)

      With your AA or imaginary JJ, I would valuebet the River. He has plenty .. plenty of Tx in his range that still call off!!


      The 2nd hand is completely different in which I will check back, I leave it up to you to find out why I think both hands are different from each other ;)

      let me know!

      - Gerv

      Hi Gerv,

      Thanks for that, on reflection the second hand wasn't as good an example as I thought it was, what with 4 cards to a straight and all :)

      Still, I did in fact play both as you suggested, and you were right - got paid off by AT in the first example.

      Cheers
