      Opponent was playing 34/0 over 45 hands, his af was 1.1, fold to cbet 60

      Poker Stars $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em - 3 players - View hand 1268110

      Hero (BTN): $10.00
      SB: $6.18
      BB: $10.15

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is BTN with 8 :heart: 8 :club:
      Hero raises to $0.30, SB calls $0.25, 1 fold

      Flop: ($0.70) 5 :heart: 2 :spade: K :heart: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.45, SB calls $0.45

      Turn: ($1.60) A :diamond: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $1, SB calls $1

      River: ($3.60) 4 :club: (2 players)
      SB bets $2, Hero?

      On the turn I decided to double barrel becouse I think most of his range are flush draws, pp's or maybe a king.
      What can he have on the river? I don't think that he would do this with king. I think that he might bluff with missed fd or value bet an ace, or maybe a 3? Do you think this is the right spot for hero call?

      no i feel this hero call wld be a bad idea. why?
      1. he is pretty passive - watch out, when passive players come to life and start betting, gtfo of the way :D
      2. i think cbet was mandatory on such a board but bigger like .5-.6 is better if u were pretending to protect vs his flush draw. he cld have some fd like Axs. but after he calls on turn, time to give up
      3. river bet is sized for value. he doesnt want u to fold here.
      4. there are two overcards

      Hello Indahaus,

      The problem lies that you are picking a wrong opponent. Who definitely ain't gonna fold either his FD or TP there on flop or either turn. Therefore against those opponents I usually just Check behind unless I know that he is somewhat nitty postflop and rather only plays strong hands.

      Best regards.
