      ANother kind of annoying spot. I really don't know what do do when guys call $1.40 over 2 streets then only go for $1.20 of value on the river. It makes no sense to me. That cant be a winning strategy overall?

      I feel like at worst here he has 2 pair. I dont see how he can turn AJ or AQ into a bluff. QJdd Q9dd? Thoughts?

      Known players:

      0.05/0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      River: ($3.45) T:diamond: (2 players)
      BB bets $1.2, Hero folds, BB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $3.45

      Hello Meemawuk,

      Well, unfortunately you can't do much there. It's most likely a hand which beats you. Could be a flush which tries to induce raise, could be straight, could be 2pairs. Most likely he wouldn't bet into you anyways there with worse while it's an opponent who seems to be rather loose-passive. So, nice hand!

      Best Regards.
