      Hero bets $0.12, BTN raises to $0.24, Hero calls $0.12

      My question here is prety rhetorical, but I need an official confirmation: " should I 3bet hes raise on river?"
      He usually shouldnt be strong here, since hes raising most of the hands which have any SD value on earlier streets,but hes on BTN, so hes should be raising preflop a lot here.
      So hands like 2 pair by the river are almost out of the question.
      Like AT,A9,AK.
      On river I cought 2 pair and hes obviously have an A or bluffing one.
      Cant see many other hands in hes range, so I think due to that I should raise him to .75 and extract some more value out of him.
      If he 4 bet me fold is in order ofc ...
      What do you think ?

      HI i think you should play check call river becouse :

      1.You didn't invested anything in the pot exept the blind
      2.Your hand is weak and on the river you can induce a bet from the opp.
      3.You don't have the best hand or at least the best top two pairs so your hand didn't necesarly improved.

      Why do you bet the river?

      Worst hands then a weak medium Ace so a top pair will definitely not raise you
      and top pair mabey just call.

      If he hit a monster and he is slow playing that is stupid becouse you lose the minimum amount if you dont bet river ofc.

      If you bet on the river you are kinda obligated to call a raise becouse i don't see how a line like bet fold/river could be good here.

      Kind Regards,

      Hello Sinnology,

      No, why do you want to 3bet there? You ain't gonna get called by worse. I'd play the same way as you did and which means I'd Call the river.

      Best regards.
