      Preflop: Hero is BU with A, K.
      4 folds, MP3 calls €0.05, CO folds, Hero raises to €0.20, 2 folds, MP3 calls €0.15.

      Flop: (€0.47) 7, J, 5 (2 players)
      MP3 checks, Hero bets €0.25, MP3 calls €0.25.

      Turn: (€0.97) 5 (2 players)
      MP3 checks, Hero checks.

      River: (€0.97) Q (2 players)
      MP3 checks, Hero checks.

      Final Pot: €0.97.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows a pair of fives(Ad Ks).
      MP3 shows two pairs, fives and fours(4d 4s).

      MP3 wins with two pairs, fives and fours(4d 4s).

      Not much to say. No reads on opponent. I played according to the MSS chart. Do u think I should have bet the river cause of the Q?

      Thanks

      No, don´t bet the river when you checked the turn. He is not very likely to fold there since you shoved weekness by checking ;) .

      But make your cbet a bit bigger, likely 0,35 ;)

      One more thing - next time you see something like this, take a note that the guy is capable of limp/calling pocket pair preflop and calling your cbet on the flop with nothing ;)

      Hello M1rCea,

      Preflop: I would do it even bigger here ~€0,25.
      Postflop: And as well the CBet size would be bigger like €0,30 and rather don't bet the river since he will most likely Call you anyways while you have shown weakness by Checking the turn. Might at the best make fold some smaller pairs or PPs but we can't be sure that he has such a hand. He could easily as well have some kind of draw which we win as well with just Checking behind.

      Best regards.
