      PartyGaming - $0.04 NL - Holdem - 9 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      UTG: $4.00
      UTG+1: $7.16 - VPIP 28 / PFR 0 / AF 4 (sample: 46 hands)
      MP: $1.76
      MP+1: $1.82
      LP: $2.37
      CO: $4.19
      BTN: $1.97
      SB: $4.37
      Hero (BB): $4.12

      SB posts SB $0.02, Hero posts BB $0.04

      Pre Flop: ($0.06) Hero has 9:spade: 4:diamond:
      fold, UTG+1 calls $0.04, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, Hero checks

      Flop: ($0.10, 2 players) 4:spade: 4:heart: 3:heart:
      Hero bets $0.08, UTG+1 calls $0.08

      Turn: ($0.26, 2 players) 9:diamond:
      Hero bets $0.20, UTG+1 calls $0.20

      River: ($0.66, 2 players) K:diamond:
      Hero bets $0.31, UTG+1 calls $0.31

      I just couln't figure out the proper size for the river value bet. Too small bet (1/3) seemed pointless (since I didn't see thinking about to raise as an induced move), an overbet seemed too strong and I didn't see him calling with many hands on this board - expect maybe lucky Kx. Though, I did get the call with 1/2 pot bet, my question is:
      Did I miss some value by not overbetting?

      Hero shows 9:spade: 4:diamond: (Full House, Fours full of Nines)
      UTG+1 mucks T:spade: T:diamond: (Two Pair, Tens and Fours)
      Hero wins $1.22

      Hello faronel,

      Vs such fishy players you can even go for bigger bet on flop ~$0,40+. And overbetting is a bit overplayed, the K there ain't the greatest card since he will have hard time Calling with a lot worse PPs/pairs.

      Best regards.
