      Hero wins with two-pair, queens and eights (Qh Qc)

      Should I value bet river?

      My thought then was I don't see any point in 3 barreling, seems very much like I'm either way ahead/way behind the hand was played. Any 8 beats me and 67 got there on the turn. Only hands I could get value from are 10s or Js which would have most probably raised on the flop too.

      Hello cheekopeh,

      If you go for a value preflop then I'd most likely also bet the river. What's your plan if he bets there into you? :) With betting you might still make him pay with worse PPs/Pairs which will just Check behind.

      Best Regards.
