      Check turn to induce a float.

      On river I'm not 100% how to play it. Went for a fairly thin value bet, problem is that I'm not sure if he could find a call with worse?

      Known players:

      0.03/0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.105 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with J:heart: , 8:heart:
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.15, BB calls $0.10.

      Flop: ($0.30) J:diamond: , 7:heart: , 3:spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.2, BB calls $0.20.

      Turn: ($0.70) 6:club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $0.38, Hero calls $0.38.

      River: ($1.46) Q:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.62, BB folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.46

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Why do you donk the river after Checking the turn? I don't really get it. What worse will Call you on the river? Rather 2nd barrel the turn than play it this horrible way.

      Best Regards.
