      Turn: ($21.75) 8 (2 players)

      River: ($49.75) Q (2 players)
      MP1 checks, Hero checks.

      Final Pot: $49.75.

      Villain was unknown and I was not sure if JJ or TT would make it to the rivver and if they did would even call a shove. Obv I could be up against a Q but there is a chance I am up against AA which did not want to 4b.

      I think it is well played. You extracted 2 streets of value which is as much as uo gonna extract agaisnt worse hands. and on the river you could be behind against Qx hands. so I'd cb as well.

      I think you´re ahead most of the times, but problem is that he would likely not call you down with worse hands like JJ/TT
      If you have some kind of history where you have shoved air on the river I think it is clear valueshove, since he would then look you up with JJ/TT and it is good to balance if you have there for example AK
