      Well i am interested if there is any better way to play that hand.
      SB is also known as passive player.

      Because there were not many scare cards i didnt want to continue with second barel....but i did have an initiative and i showed preflop that i am strong.

      Anyway....Was that check/fold line ok or it would be better to fire a second barel?

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      BB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K, A.
      4 folds, SB raises to $0.35, Hero raises to $1.00, SB calls $0.65.

      Flop: ($2) J, 4, 5 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $1.25, SB calls $1.25.

      Turn: ($4.5) 3 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks.

      River: ($4.5) Q (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks.

      Final Pot: $4.5.

      The 3 isn't a good barrel card as it doesn't improve your hand and isn't a scare card. Unless you have a read that he's calling a lot of flops to give up on the turn I think the check behind is ok.

      You can think about repping the Q on the river but I think a check behind is also fine.

      Hello Alan883,

      If he is a passive player then I would just Check it behind right on flop. You ain't gonna make a better hand to fold. :) If he doesn't have a hand he wont bet anyways. Plus of course it's still a 3bet pot.

      Best Regards.
