      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.03/$0.06 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      UTG2 (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is UTG2 with J, A.
      UTG1 posts deadblind, UTG1 checks, Hero raises to $0.30, 7 folds, UTG1 calls $0.24.

      Flop: ($0.69) K, T, 5 (2 players)
      UTG1 checks, Hero checks.

      Turn: ($0.69) J (2 players)
      UTG1 bets $0.34, Hero calls $0.34.

      River: ($1.37) A (2 players)
      UTG1 bets $0.68, Hero calls $0.68.

      Final Pot: $2.73.

      villains stats is 78/22/3.0. Because he looked too loose I chose raise lightly to isolate him.
      And on flop, I chose check behind because of draw heavy board.
      On turn I called because I hit. If he had king he would often bet on flop.
      On river he bet half size and I thought my hand is enough to call so called.
      Was it reraise on river overplay? was the other play ok?

      Hello Gonchan,

      Why should he often bet the flop? He could easily just let you to bet it and then either Check/Raise or Check/Call.

      Although about the play I'd still Cbet the flop with definitely fold equity and even GS+overcards possible. We also secure with that us a free card for river.

      But as played well, kinda close I'd say. If you expect him also to have bluffs in his range then sure it's considerable vs his VPIP and maybe even worse 2pairs. And he ain't betting that big either.

      Best Regards.
