      NL Holdem $0.02(BB) Replayer
      SB ($0.83)
      BB ($2.52)
      UTG ($1.79)
      UTG+1 ($1.84)
      UTG+2 ($3.21)
      MP1 ($1.32)
      Hero ($4.01)
      BTN ($0.94)

      Dealt to Hero K:club: K:diamond:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.08, fold, fold, BB calls $0.06

      FLOP ($0.17) 3:spade: A:spade: 8:heart:

      BB checks, Hero bets $0.12, BB calls $0.12

      TURN ($0.41) 3:spade: A:spade: 8:heart: 8:club:

      BB checks, Hero checks

      Since he called my contibet, I am not so sure he does not have an A or 8, so I checked.

      RIVER ($0.41) 3:spade: A:spade: 8:heart: 8:club: 5:club:

      BB bets $0.39, Hero calls $0.39

      Here I think he may be bluffing, due to the weakness I showed earlier.

      Hello Gloryne,

      Flop: Well, do you think you can get more value by betting the river? They will pretty much have hard time calling with hands like TT-QQ. Rather Check behind the flop and reevaluate it on turn.

      As played
      River: Well, I wouldn't say you did show a lot of weakness. But according his bet size it's likely that he is even bluffing. If he had the Ax would he bet that much? Therefore I guess it's kinda close. Most likely I would just play it differently on previous streets. :> Although obviously if you expect the opponent to bluff in this case then sure why not, you can Call it.

      Best regards.
