      On the river I was like - he has a set, he has a set ... I was really pretty sure about that. So what should I do ? I was like - hm, I am not gonna fold here when I called two streets already and nothing changed here on the river. When should I fold ? Or should I raise/fold flop ? That doesn´t make much sense to me ...

      Known players:      

      0,02/0,05 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant.Base 0.99 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A:diamond: , Q:spade:
      5 folds, Hero raises to $0,20, BU folds, SB calls $0,18, BB calls $0,15.

      Flop: ($0,60) A:club: , 6:diamond: , 2:diamond: (3 players)
      SB checks, BB bets $0,5, Hero calls $0,50, SB folds.

      Turn: ($1,60) 3:heart: (2 players)
      BB bets $1, Hero calls $1,00.

      River: ($3,60) 4:spade: (2 players)
      BB bets $2,05, Hero calls $2,05.

      Final Pot: $7,70

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows (Ad Qs)
      BB shows three-of-a-kind, sixes (6h 6c)

      BB wins with three-of-a-kind, sixes (6h 6c)

      Hello acceleration123,

      Actually you can still fold the river because I don't really see him betting there with a lot worse hands. But mainly as you don't know him, I wouldn't really raise or either give it up either on turn. But rather give it up on river.

      He may still 2nd barrel with draws/Ax type of hands but I don't think that he is going to 3barrel with them that often to make the Call profitable. And sometimes I do prefer even folding right on turn.

      Best regards.
