      Could I have bet the river for thin value? I decided to check behind because of my kicker and the completed draw of course.

      Hello Avatars91,

      How many worse hands will pay you? Did anything complete? And you have your answer. :)

      Best Regards.

      If I bet small then maybe a 9 or a PP might call. The FD did complete, but more often than not I expect them to donk these in fear of seeing a check behind. Would a small river bet really be a total no-no?

      Uh, it's hard with you. You don't even have a kicker for Q, you may easily just value-town yourself. :) I would definitely Check it behind and skip the thin value.

      What if I tried a $0.20 bet? Our opponent might call with whatever weak made hand he had because of the odds. And we don't probably have to worry about balancing against him. I for example would not be too surprised if he called my $0.20 bet with his K9.

      I am not going into details since it's really hard with you. Make it easy and simple. Which is more worth, the $0,20 or the information how he plays his hands and maybe even make him mad because he hit his flush and didn't get paid?
