      No, bet is fine. You should bet half pot size.

      What do you think could be paying me off after I bet the river?

      Weaker K most likely. But the main reason for half pot size here is not for value. So you could fold easier when you got raised.

      With villains AF being 0.4, with TPMK I'm betting till raised, you shouldn't be considering betting to induce with such a passive player post flop due to whenever he/she does raise, you're behind 100% of the time. As played on the flop bet slightly more, ~0.16, good turn sizing and as mentioned bet less on the river (~0.4-0.6), folding if raised. Your river bet sizing prices you into a hero call which isn't a desirable situation for you against such a passive player, so by betting less it gives you the opportunity to get away from your hand knowing you're behind. Regards, Paul.

      I can't say that he is a passive player. I only have 15 hands on him.

      You can't consider checking to induce because you don't know villains tendencies (works both ways), for the most part b/f on the river is optimal but because of the bet size you're priced in to call when raised.

      Hello adsefghijk,

      I'd Bet the flop ~$0,16 and I don't really get why do you Bet the river so big? How many worse hands will pay you there? Rather make a 1/2 pot size bet and be even happy if you get called from worse. :(

      Best Regards.
