      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is CO with A :diamond: K :diamond:
      Hero raises to $0.75, 2 folds, BB calls $0.50

      Flop: ($1.60) 3 :heart: 2 :heart: 6 :spade: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $1.22, BB calls $1.22

      Turn: ($4.04) J :spade: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($4.04) 2 :club: (2 players)
      BB bets $3.75, Hero calls $3.75

      Usually lost in this spots with overcards on low connected boards vs opponents with calling tendencies.

      On the river I thought that it doesn't make sense for him to bet so large with a hand except Jx,2x,45, and given how many draws are in his range I decided to call. Also in this spots against fish the larger and quicker the bet the more inclined I am to call. What do you think about this?

      Q: a little of a general approach to play these spots. As I said above I am usually quite lost and I either choose to totally give up or to make some barrels but with no strong plan.

      Hi,

      - if you´re going to call is river bet on blank card then I would rather prefer barreling turn. Since his calling range is very wide you can easily be ahead and therefor should bet for value and protection. Also J is nice card for your range and he may fold some better hands, like A2 to your turn barrel+ that would also give you option barreling him on scare river card, like Qx or if you don´t want to bluff then take your free showdown

      Best regards,
