      Hero ($10)
      BB ($13.64)
      CO ($16.99)
      BTN ($19.40)

      Dealt to Hero Q:heart: Q:spade:

      fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.30, BB calls $0.20

      FLOP ($0.60) A:diamond: 8:spade: 3:spade:

      Hero bets $0.45, BB calls $0.45

      TURN ($1.50) A:diamond: 8:spade: 3:spade: 3:club:

      Hero checks, BB checks

      RIVER ($1.50) A:diamond: 8:spade: 3:spade: 3:club: 5:club:

      Hero bets $1, BB calls $1

      Hero shows Q:heart: Q:spade:
      (Pre 68%, Flop 7.2%, Turn 4.5%)

      BB shows A:spade: 6:spade:
      (Pre 32%, Flop 92.8%, Turn 95.5%)

      BB wins $3.33

      I would never check behind an A after my opponent gives up.

      That's a perfect example of bluff inducing from his side of view. He knows that no weaker hands would call anyway, so he checks behind.

      Hello BrinkyBill,

      Nah, I don't like betting the river. There ain't many worse hands which may Call you. Flushdraw missed, Ax is possible and more often they don't float on Axx boards with a lot weaker PPs. Might consider betting but for it I'd rather know the opponent.

      Best regards.
