      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with Q:spade: , Q:club:
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.20, MP3 folds, CO calls $0.20, 2 folds, BB calls $0.15.

      River: ($3.24) 2:spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks.

      Final Pot: $3.24

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows a pair of queens (Qs Qc)
      CO shows (Kc Tc)

      Hero wins with a pair of queens (Qs Qc)

      On the river various draws completed so I was intending to check/call if villain bets less than about half pot, and check/fold if he bets more than that. Is that ok, or do you prefer bet/fold?

      Hello member001,

      You can even bet the flop & turn bigger while there are somewhat loose opponents. Although it's not a must. But the river is rather a Bet/Fold yourself than Check/Call or whatsoever. There are just so many worse hands which may Call you and basically they are just going to Check behind if you don't bet yourself and you going to miss value.

      Best regards.
