      3 hands on villain, so no info.

      Is my river bet too small here? I think it's an easy fold, and quite sure he's slow-playing a big hand, maybe a set, but is it also possible my small river bet induced a bluff?

      Maybe check flop?

      I thought carefully before folding, but had a feeling I was crushed.

      Hello philhellmutt,

      Flop: Yes, on those limits it's even possible just Check right on flop, although ain't a big mistake if you even CBet there since some players tend to play there anyways just fit/fold and they are capable of folding such a such a flop.
      River: I guess your bet sizing is even fine for the reason that it gives you as well room for a fold which you are trying to accomplish and as well giving him some room for a call with a lot worse and not much you can do there against his shove, we often are behind there.

      Best regards.
