      Missed a fair bit of value on the river here.

      Figured if I raise him I struggle to get away from my hand if he shoves. There are potential straights, a flush or better sets that I didn't want to pay-off.

      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      BB:
      $6.24
      Hero:
      $5.03

      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 BU with 3:spade: , 3:club:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.18, SB folds, BB calls $0.13.

      Flop: ($0.39) J:club: , 8:club: , 3:diamond: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.29, BB calls $0.29.

      Turn: ($0.97) K:club: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.74, BB calls $0.74.

      River: ($2.45) A:heart: (2 players)
      BB bets $0.05, Hero calls $0.05.

      Final Pot: $2.55

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows three-of-a-kind, threes (3s 3c)
      BB shows (Ad Kh)

      Hero wins with three-of-a-kind, threes (3s 3c)

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Well, I'd most likely bet bigger right on flop ~$0,35. :) But otherwise really close raise on the river, of course it's possible but do you think he will even pay you with a lot worse. And you will have hard time if he decides to shove. I might raise for like $1,60 or something similar if I'd raise at all.

      Best Regards.
