      I called the BTN steal raise with QK (could also 3bet against his Fv3B, but only 8 hands..), hit TP and check/call his flop cbet. What to do on later streets?

      BTN: 33/33/50/100/8 (VPIP/PFR/ST/Fv3B/H)

      $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Holdem
      4 Players

      CO ($13.46)
      BTN ($10)
      Hero (SB) ($10.35)
      BB ($11.93)

      Pre-Flop: ($0.15, 4 players) Hero is SB Q:heart: K:heart:
      1 fold, BTN raises to $0.30, Hero calls $0.25, 1 fold

      Flop: 3:heart: 10:club: Q:diamond: ($0.70, 2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.50, Hero calls $0.50

      Turn: 8:club: ($1.70, 2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      River: J:diamond: ($1.70, 2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.85, Hero calls $0.85

      Final Pot: $3.40
      BTN shows
      9:spade: 8:spade:
      Hero shows
      Q:heart: K:heart:

      BTN wins $3.18 (net +$1.53)

      Hero lost $1.70

      Hello Alleen86,

      The problem on river is that we don't beat much. :/ And most likely which hand is taking such a line usually rather means he is betting for value on river. Not many draws missed either. Therefore I'd rather Check/Fold the river even vs such a bet size.

      Best regards.
