      Villian is pretty loose and has high VPIP. As well the flush draw didn't hit. On the Other Side I only beat two Pair and Qx. As well i thought there were actually no logically straight drawn and he is rather rarely bluffing on this bord texture.
      Maybe check behind on River would have been better but dont see me folding 5 more dollar with trips in 15 dollar pot, odds just too good considering his loose image.

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      BU = ($23.50)
      SB = ($17.87)
      BB = ($43.41)
      MP2 = ($10.84)
      MP3 = ($5.28)
      CO (Hero) = ($10.00)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with 4 :club: , 4. :diamond:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.40, BU calls $0.40, 2 folds, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.95) 5 :spade: , 4 :spade: , Q :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.60, BU calls $0.60.

      Turn: ($2.15) 7 :heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.50, BU calls $1.50.

      River: ($5.15) 2 :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.40, BU raises to $8.45, Hero calls $5.10(All-In).

      Final Pot: $21.1.

      Hello 11pokerallstars11,

      Basically I'd even bet bigger the flop like $0,80, and turn $1,80 and maybe even river for the reason that there aren't that many hands which he wins us while he could still have a lot of hands which may Call us.

      But as played the river is kinda marginal, we just have to ask what hands do we win there? If he really had 2pairs on flop or turn then why didn't he raise them to protect from draws? But as well knowing that he has very high VPIP and wide range I guess it shouldn't be a mistake to Call the river while he may easily even come up with 2pairs as well.

      But now again of course it depends as well on the villain, sometimes I might easily just fold on river.

      Best regards.
