      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.25, Hero calls $0.25

      River: ($1.01) K:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.50

      I decided to slowplay on the turn and check-called, but then on the river I realized I was out of position and I didn't want to check again. Thus I bet 1/2 pot. I think the right way to play this is just betting 3/4 pot for value on the turn. What do you think?

      Hello Elertar,

      Add to full stack if playing BSS.

      Boh, I don't like the Check on turn at all. Rather just go for Bet/Bet/Bet and that's it. :) No point to play such a trappy play, if he has a hand then he is going to pay you anyways.

      Best regards.
