      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      BB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BB with J, A.
      5 folds, CO raises to $0.20, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.60, CO calls $0.40.

      Flop: ($1.22) 8, 9, A (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.85, CO calls $0.85.

      Turn: ($2.92) Q (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.50, CO calls $1.50.

      River: ($5.92) Q (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.03, CO calls $1.03.

      Final Pot: $7.98.

      Results follow:

      CO shows two pairs, aces and queens(As Ks).
      Hero shows two pairs, aces and queens(Jh Ah).

      CO wins with two pairs, aces and queens(As Ks).

      No reads on the player. Preflop i reraise him 3x, he calls.

      Ok so i bet the on the flop w/ top pair for value he calls, a Q appears on the turn, im a bit worried he might have AQ, The 2nd Q on the River makes me think he doesn't. I bet on every street and he called.

      Should I assume he has an Ace with a better kicker or a Q (since he called my reraise preflop) and check/fold?

      Hello M1rCea,

      It's often the case that we don't get much value from a lot worse hands there, might even value-town ourselves. Since it's a 3bet pot then I expect him to as well have a stronger hand, AK is very reasonable. Therefore I might even consider just Check/Folding the river since I don't see many worse hands to bet there anyways.

      Plus add to full stack if you playing BSS.

      Best regards.
