      Preflop: Hero is BB with 2:spade: , 2:diamond:
      MP2 calls $0.05, 3 folds, SB calls $0.03, Hero checks.

      SB checks, Hero checks, MP2 bets $0.1, SB folds, Hero raises to $0.42, MP2 calls $0.32.

      River: ($2.83) 5:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.54, MP2 calls $1.54.

      Final Pot: $5.91

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      MP2 shows (Ac 4c)
      Hero shows three-of-a-kind, deuces (2s 2d)

      Hero wins with three-of-a-kind, deuces (2s 2d)

      Bet sizing right? I put him on TP, but not sure if he would call 3/4 or more PSB. Am I right to put villain on a range of hands and decide amount to bet or just value bet big? What if I can't put him on a range?

      Hello cheekopeh,

      Rather Bet yourself on the flop and protect your hand than see Checks. :D But of course your way the hand is played is also fine. But you just had one guy behind you, therefore rather bet yourself the flop.

      Best Regards.
