      Worried about my postflop play here, especially the overbet on the river. Opponent playing very loose and quite aggressive over a decent sample size, and I though some bluffs (missed flush draw) made up a solid amount of his range, however overbet on the river often represents big strength at this limit; should I be finding a fold here?

      Known players:

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (10 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.102 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BU with A:spade: , J:spade:
      UTG calls $0.02, 6 folds, Hero raises to $0.09, SB calls $0.08, BB calls $0.07, UTG calls $0.07.

      Flop: ($0.36) 9:diamond: , 6:spade: , 4:spade: (4 players)
      SB checks, BB bets $0.02, UTG folds, Hero raises to $0.15, SB calls $0.15, BB calls $0.13.

      Turn: ($0.81) J:club: (3 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, Hero bets $0.4, SB folds, BB calls $0.40.

      River: ($1.61) 8:club: (2 players)
      BB raises $1.09 (All-In), Hero calls $1.09.

      Final Pot: $3.79

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows (As Js)
      BB shows a straight, queen high (Qc Ts)

      BB wins with a straight, queen high (Qc Ts)

      Hello boomer011,

      Flop: If he is giving you that great odds then just abuse him and Call it vs his bet size. :) You are still in multiway pot and we don't want to see a 3bet.

      As played
      Turn: Why do you bet that smallish on turn? I'd definitely bet it bigger.

      As played
      River: Most likely you don't beat much after our line on flop & turn. I'd rather make a crying fold here.

      Best regards.
