      Results follow:

      CO shows a pair of jacks(J Q).
      Hero shows two pairs, nines and eights(8 9).
      SB shows a pair of kings(K K).

      Hero wins with two pairs, nines and eights(8 9).

      SB: 78/2 over 50 hands, major calling station
      CO: 23/11 over 47 hands

      How is my line here? Is 2 streets of value fine with just 2pair or should I bet the river too? Couple of flush draws/straight draws missed so am I likely to get much value from a river bet?

      Hello numbnutter,

      Guess you can even consider Betting the river as well for value and ship it. Doubt that he is coming up with a lot better hands since if he had it then he would most likely ship earlier already.

      Best Regards.
