      [b]Hero (MP): $25.00 -

      BB: $61.35 - VPIP: 21, PFR: 17, 3B: 7, AF: 2.7, Hands: 264

      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is MP with Q :heart: A :diamond:
      1 fold, Hero raises to $0.87, 3 folds, BB calls $0.62

      Flop: ($1.84) K :club: J :club: 4 :spade: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $1.38, BB calls $1.38

      Turn: ($4.60) A :club: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($4.60) 3 :spade: (2 players)
      BB bets $3.00, Hero folds

      I checked turned because every draws got there and AJ also improved. Given that is he betting any worse hands on the river, I doubt he is even thought I under represent my hand don't see any hands in his range that call flop and donk river and are worse than mine.

      Hello DeMarcohsp,

      I like your play here and I wouldn't play it any differently. You are most likely beat on the river. I mean what do you beat there? Just some pair turned into bluff and that's it. But we can't even be sure if the guy is capable of doing that.

      Best Regards.

      Bet turn for value. Kx with FD, Jx with FD call once more and you usually get free showdown. He is way more likely combinatorically to have Kx and Jx with a FD than AJ which you were quick to get scared of.
