      Preflop: Hero is BU with Q, J.
      6 folds, Hero raises to $0.75, SB calls $0.65, BB folds.

      Flop: ($1.75) K, 6, 3 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $1.00, SB calls $1.00.

      Turn: ($3.75) Q (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks.

      River: ($3.75) J (2 players)
      SB bets $2.00, Hero raises to $7.87, SB calls $5.00(All-In).

      Final Pot: $18.62.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows two pairs, queens and jacks(Qc Jh).
      SB shows two pairs, kings and jacks(Kc Jc).

      Hero wins with two pairs, queens and jacks(Qc Jh).
      SB wins with two pairs, kings and jacks(Kc Jc).

      Villain in 75 hands :
      7(vpip)/5(pfr)/0(3b)/-/0(steal)
      -/0(fcbet)/-/25(wtsd)/1(af)
      fold steal 100%

      The first time he calls after many steals. I think preflop,flop & turn are ok. How would you play the river? Now that I'm thinking clearly, he can have something like KQ or AT so a call would be better.

      Hi BadeaCelRau,

      I think raise on River is not good because you isolate to KQ,KJ,33,66 and you only beat AK and AK will 3bet preflop. I think I will fold or call on River.

      Exactly this BCR. The Kings that he is betting have 2pair mostly and you have among the worst 2pairs here
