      Results follow:

      BU shows high card ace(Jd Kc).
      Hero shows three of a kind, twos(2c 2s).

      Hero wins with three of a kind, twos(2c 2s).

      Villain is 35/22/AF 2.5/WTS 34/166 hands .Is my line ok ? Or b/f the river would have been better. I bet the turn with the intention to fold to a raise and see a cheap showdown.

      Hello alexgrapid,

      While I guess we still beat a lot of 2pair type of hands and as well A is in his range then you might even consider Check/Calling the river. Since he will anyways have hard time Calling with hand like Qx and as well he might still have few bluff-hands in his range. And with Check/Raise we don't get many hands to Call anyways, rather those who beat us.

      Best regards.
