      Known players:

      0.1/0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.104 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A:heart: , J:heart:
      5 folds, CO raises to $0.62, BU folds, Hero raises to $2.25, BB folds, CO calls $1.63.

      Flop: ($4.75) A:club: , K:diamond: , T:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.75, CO calls $2.75.

      Turn: ($10.25) Q:spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $5.5, CO calls $5.50.

      River: ($21.25) K:heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $14.93 (All-In), Hero folds, CO gets uncalled bet back (All-In).

      Final Pot: $21.25

      I don't like this fold, but I don't like the call either. Horrible spot.

      Any ideas on what to do here? I don't think any worse hands can call us on the river - Villain's open range is 20% from CO so sometimes could have a strange non-full Kx hand, but no way he would pay 2 streets then bet it on that board.

      I think c/c would be fine to induce bluffshove from flushdraws (also consider how small you bet turn he might easily call again). Other option woudl be to shove, but since he would not fold Jx and always call with better hands I would likely prefer c/c.
