      Hand1:

      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      MP2:
      $53,5
      Hero:
      $36,68
      BU:
      $50,5

      0,15/0,25 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.102 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A:club: , K:club:
      MP2 calls $0,25, MP3 folds, Hero raises to $1,15, BU calls $1,15, 3 folds.

      Flop: ($2,95) A:spade: , T:diamond: , 3:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $2, BU raises to $6,85, Hero calls $4,85.

      I think villain could semibluff and if we weren't deep i would ship on flop.
      But here i can still fold later if he ships on turn so i called.

      Turn: ($16,65) 4:club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU checks.

      River: ($16,65) J:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $9, BU folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Rather just check since he could bluff his weaker hands/ air again?

      Final Pot: $16,65

      Hand2 (happened ~25 minutes later against same opponent):


      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      SB:
      $26,65
      BB:
      $32,81

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with A:spade: , A:diamond:
      Hero raises to $0,90, 2 folds, SB calls $0,75, BB calls $0,65.

      Flop: ($2,70) K:heart: , 8:heart: , 5:diamond: (3 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, Hero bets $2,2, SB raises to $6,45, BB folds, Hero calls $4,25.

      This time i could ship against his draws, if he haven't seen him play like this bevor with weaker hands -> so i just called.

      Turn: ($15,60) 7:spade: (2 players)
      SB bets $6, Hero calls $6,00.

      River: ($27,60) 6:club: (2 players)
      SB raises $13,3 (All-In), Hero calls $11,50 (All-In), SB gets uncalled bet back (All-In).

      Bad card since his air could have got a straight but i can't fold anymore.

      Final Pot: $50,60

      Hi,

      1) I´d played the same way on the flop, turn and river. I think valuebetting river yourself is better than c/c, since he can always call your small river bet 7-8$ with Adxd hands that he raise on the flop for value.
      2) Against that small bet I´d prefer shoving turn. River seems quite bad card and since players would generally not 3-barrel there air I think folding is better than calling him down.
