      Ultra passive guy check-raises me on the river. My bet is designed to get called by Tx here. I should really be checking behind on the turn since I have great equity vs Tx and dont want to get raised off. River should almost always be a check back i guess?

      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      SB:
      $3.66
      Hero:
      $5.07

      0.02/0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant.Base 0.98 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with A:heart: , Q:spade:
      Hero raises to $0.20, 3 folds, SB calls $0.18, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.45) T:heart: , 7:club: , 4:heart: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.28, SB calls $0.28.

      Turn: ($1.01) 3:heart: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.55, SB calls $0.55.

      River: ($2.11) A:diamond: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.7, SB raises to $2.00, Hero folds, SB gets uncalled bet back (All-In).

      Final Pot: $3.51

      Hello Meemawuk,

      Turn: I don't really like the 2nd barreling here for the reason that such a guy wont fold his hand here anyways and the 2nd barreling idea is just the idea of building up the pot. Although it ain't that big problem anyways.

      As played
      River: Nope, there is still value from a lot of pairs which might easily pay us, therefore I don't even mind such a bet there and definitely fold it to a Check/Raise, not much we beat.

      Best regards.
