      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Known players:
      CO (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is CO with Q, A.
      MP3 raises to $0.35, Hero calls $0.35, BU calls $0.35, 2 folds, BB folds.

      Flop: ($1.2) 6, Q, 8 (3 players)
      MP3 checks, Hero bets $0.80, BU calls $0.80, MP3 folds.

      Turn: ($2.8) T (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.00, BU calls $2.00.

      River: ($6.8) 6 (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.00, BU raises to $5.90, Hero folds, BU gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $9.8.

      Do you agree with the line? Is the villain ever raising the river with a worse hand with almost no fold equity?

      I think you´re better off to shove river for value.
      There are less than potsize left, so basically imo you shouldn´t b/f river any more
      Since he would call you down with worse hands, you have easy shove for value. As played: you get 14.74: 2.47= 5.97:1, needing to have 14% equity.
      I wouldn´t really save there 2.47$, but rather call (especially since you starter hand 86 bb)

      Best regards,

      yeah, i used to bet/call in similar spots before but have never seen my hand be best at showdown, though I agree that jamming river will get max value against worse hands as hands that call $3 will call $6 too.
