      Full Tilt No-Limit Hold'em, $0.50 BB (6 handed) - Full Tilt Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      saw flop

      SB ($35.25)
      BB ($61.10)
      Hero (UTG) ($52.20)
      MP ($168.50)
      CO ($50)
      Button ($52.60)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with A, Q
      Hero bets $1.50, 3 folds, SB raises to $3, 1 fold, Hero calls $1.50

      Flop: ($6.50) K, Q, 2 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($6.50) 4 (2 players)
      SB bets $5, Hero calls $5

      River: ($16.50) 2 (2 players)
      SB bets $10.50, Hero calls $10.50

      Total pot: $37.50 | Rake: $1.85


      Only 2 hands on the villain so this hand is as played in a vacuum.

      I choose to check back flop so that he can try to bluff on later streets and also to avoid getting c/r by a flush draw.

      Once I check back on the flop I think calling down our opponents barrels is a good option.

      What do you think about the flop check behind ?

      since you likely don´t want to b/f and you have showdown value I like it.
      if you want you can also fold to his strong river bet, since don´t think he would bluff that spot too often random hands
