      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.105 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is CO with K:heart: , K:club:
      MP3 calls $0,25, Hero raises to $1,25, 2 folds, BB calls $1,00, MP3 calls $1,00.

      Flop: ($3,90) 8:spade: , 7:diamond: , 4:club: (3 players)
      BB checks, MP3 checks, Hero bets $2,5, BB folds, MP3 calls $2,50.

      Turn: ($8,90) 9:spade: (2 players)
      MP3 checks, Hero bets $6, MP3 calls $6,00.

      River: ($20,90) 7:club: (2 players)
      MP3 checks, Hero checks.

      Saw MP3 already check the nuts. Because of that i only thought about the hands that beat me and checked behind. But it's more likely that he has a weaker hand so should i bet ~$10 on the river?

      Final Pot: $20,90

      I think his range is pretty huge here.

      So many hands in his range, maybe something like (22-TT, A8-4, T9, 98, 87, 86, 65, 54) for a starting point, could be way wider.

      I think I probably bet river small like you said and then fold to a shove, might even be better to only bet something like $7.

      I don't think checking the river here is necessarily bad though if you have seen him check the nuts on the river before as there are plenty of hands that beat you, but I think I would always bet just to get a call from all his random 1 pair hands.

      Hello chocular77,

      He still has couple of worse hands which may pay you off there, so you can still Bet/Fold it but of course overall it ain't a huge mistake if you even skip the thin value.

      Best Regards.
