      Villain is relatively unknown over 47 hands with 13/0 vpip/pfr. Should I have bet more than pot size rather than value bet on the flop when I hit a high two pair? I posted the results in spoilers because I wanted to know if this was just a bad beat, or I could've managed better.

      Hello funnyclock,

      If the opponent would be full stacked then I'd definitely Check/Fold the river.

      But as played:
      Could bet a bit more on flop but it ain't a huge mistake. I would bet ~$0,16. And just ship it on turn vs his stack. He doesn't have much left anyways.

      Best regards.

      Oh, lol only 14 cents left. Then I'd just bet it a bit bigger on flop and ship it directly on turn and that's pretty much it. :)
