      Here I had pocket queens, and pet 3/4 pot on the flop and turn for value.

      I completely missed the donk bet on the river. Would this have been a correct fold?

      Cheers,

      Money.

      P.S. I was SH, Big stacked, just because I was trying out the beginners camera poker action on 888, and you can't choose your buy in seemingly.

      Hello,

      I would fold river, because all draws have completed. You cannot expect an unknown taking passive line and then bet river with JJ or Tx. He will have flush or two pair+ most of the time.

      Hey MoneyDearest,

      I would bet bigger on the Flop ($0.50) and Turn ($1.25) to extract more value & protect my hand from draws.

      The River completes a straight and pairs the board. I think we can safely find a fold here. The only deviation I would make is contemplate a call. A raise is out of the equation because we dont get value from worse immediately

      Best regards,
      Gerv
