      Was there any point me making that small bet on the river for a cheap show down? Since we are only beating KQ

      Known players:

      0.02/0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.102 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with K:spade: , K:club:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.20, CO folds, BU calls $0.20, 2 folds.

      Flop: ($0.47) Q:heart: , 7:club: , 3:spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.31, BU calls $0.31.

      Turn: ($1.09) A:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.72, BU calls $0.72.

      River: ($2.53) 5:spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.3, BU calls $0.30.

      Final Pot: $3.13

      You also beat QJ, QT and other Qx hands that 39/11 might call, so I´m fine betting small on the river rather than c/f.

      Hello clandestineAl,

      Well, your line is totally fine and rather bet yourself the river than Check/Call or anything similar. Check/Folding could be an option since he is pretty passive player, although while he may still even have worse Qx hands, worse pairs. I'd still block-bet myself, although I don't like the idea of making it that small. If you are doing it for small-thin value then don't induce others to raise you, ~$1 would be my bet.

      It's not just against this opponent but overall, against some aggressive opponent you might easily just induce a raise from them with your bet size. You are never betting this way with strong hand.

      Best Regards.
