      Looked at his AF and figured he would most likely bet the river so went for the check raise line.

      A valid choice or just bet it myself?

      As shown I was a bit shocked he didn't bet again, he would likely have called a very big bet with 2 pair.

      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 T:club: , 9:club:
      MP3 calls $0.05, CO calls $0.05, BU folds, Hero calls $0.02, BB checks.

      Hero bets $0.14, BB raises to $0.28, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.14.

      Turn: ($0.76) 8:diamond: (2 players)

      River: ($1.64) Q:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks.

      Final Pot: $1.64

      Results follow (highlight to see):

      BB shows (Jh 3h)

      Hero wins with a straight, queen high (Tc 9c)

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Well, I don't really see why we should Check/Raise on the river? If he even has a weak hand he is going to Check it behind like weak Jx. Plus we don't even need to Check/Raise, he doesn't even have a full stack. We could just ship it ourselves and that would be most likely my line there. :)

      Best Regards.
