      Hey guys,

      dont have many hands on villain (SB), but his stats were (17/8/1 over 12 hands).

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      SB:
      $8.10
      BB:
      $5.08
      UTG1:
      $9.80
      UTG2:
      $9.65
      MP1:
      $10.09
      MP2:
      $10.08
      MP3:
      $6.59
      CO:
      $3.90
      BU (Hero):
      $4.20


      Preflop: Hero is BU with A, 4.
      6 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, SB calls $0.25, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.7) J, 3, T (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.50, SB calls $0.50.

      Turn: ($1.7) 6 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks.

      River: ($1.7) A (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.85, SB raises to $7.30, Hero ??

      After he checks on the river I was putting him on on some type of a hand with J or some underpair (99,88), and thought I could get some more value out of it. Was I going for too thin value over here?

      Now that I look at the hh, (AJ, JT both beat me, im only beating QJ,KJ) out of the jack hands, but also KQ got there and maybe A3,AT if he called cbet with a pair.

      Any advice appreciated.

      I would valuebet bigger actually like $1.2 because I dont believe 2pair will check/raise you unless it is AJ/AT which is really narrow BTnvsSB

      As a matter of fact I inclined to call it as KQ will lead, JT will lead, AJ/AT as well so it is either the stone cold nuts or a busted FD or some weird midpair

      Best regards,
      Gerv
