      NL Holdem $0.02(BB) Replayer
      SB ($1.64)
      BB ($1.73)

      UTG+2 ($0.74)
      MP1 ($1.16)
      CO ($2.24)
      Hero ($2)

      Dealt to Hero Q:diamond: J:heart:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.06, SB calls $0.05, BB raises to $0.10, Hero calls $0.04, SB calls $0.04

      FLOP ($0.30) J:diamond: 5:club: 2:diamond:

      SB checks, BB checks, Hero bets $0.21, SB calls $0.21, BB folds

      TURN ($0.72) J:diamond: 5:club: 2:diamond: 5:diamond:

      SB checks, Hero bets $0.51, SB calls $0.51

      RIVER ($1.74) J:diamond: 5:club: 2:diamond: 5:diamond: 2:club:

      SB bets $0.82 (AI), Hero ???

      Villain is 37/15/0.6 over 64 hands.

      Since he is a calling station I imagine he has a 2, a 5 or even the flush. Is fold the right move?

      Hello Elertar,

      Well, I am not a huge fan of taking 3streets value in this situation. Rather Check it behind on the turn while even a draw completed.

      But as played fold the river, you most likely are beat vs rather passive player.

      Best regards.
