      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      BU (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BU with A, Q.
      MP2 calls $0.02, MP3 folds, CO raises to $0.08, Hero calls $0.08, 2 folds, MP2 calls $0.06.

      Flop: ($0.27) 2, 4, 2 (3 players)
      MP2 checks, CO bets $0.12, Hero calls $0.12, MP2 calls $0.12.

      Turn: ($0.63) J (3 players)
      MP2 checks, CO bets $0.18, Hero calls $0.18, MP2 calls $0.18.

      River: ($1.17) 6 (3 players)
      MP2 checks, CO bets $0.20, Hero calls $0.20

      I simply called on the river and did not raise simply because of the board and the fact I had two villains with me and calling. Is this an instashove on the river seeing as I would be hard pressed to fold to a raise? Or if I raise on the river, do I risk losing the call of the villain still to act?

      Did I lose value here?

      definitely raise the river, if the bet wasnt that weak, i might just call, but most of the time, you got the nuts

      Hello hackbinder,

      I'd be still inclined to threw a small raise there for value. There ain't gonna be that many 2x hands which make FH. Or neither many hands which make FH with PPs. Although there might be even overpairs which may pay you and of course even some pairs/weaker PPs.

      Best regards.
