      villain is 50/28/ VPIP/PFR in 50 hands only.

      i decided to check the flop even it hit my perceived range. was thinking that i will only get value hands from draws and i am behind Ax and KK granting KK does not 4bet pre. if i check flop and bet turn i can bet value from Small PP that setmine oop and more draws. easy fold on river?

      or should i go with bet flop bet turn and evaluate river line?

      BB ($4.14)
      UTG ($13.95)
      MP ($20.87)
      Hero (Button) ($20.18)
      SB ($41.13)

      Preflop: Hero is Button with Q, Q
      UTG bets $0.45, 1 fold, Hero raises $1.85, 2 folds, UTG calls $1.40

      Flop: ($4) 8, A, 3 (2 players)
      UTG checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($4) 6 (2 players)
      UTG checks, Hero bets $2, UTG calls $2

      River: ($8) 8 (2 players)
      UTG bets $10.10 (All-In), Hero ???

      Looks like an easy fold yes. Definitely looks like 8x or slowplayed set.

      I think vs a calling station you can definitely go for cbet. A lot of people will call flop w pp as well.

      I would also fold river.
      I think I would generally prefer c-betting flop, checking back turn and then either calling or betting myself on the river.
      You can take check back flop to induce bluffs, but I doubt he would bluff on Axx board, so I would rather bet for value on the flop and if he has there 8x, he would not really going to fold to your c-bet.

      best regards,
