      Pre Flop: ($0.30) Hero is UTG with Q :club: Q :diamond:
      Hero raises to $0.70, 1 fold, BTN calls $0.70, 2 folds

      River: ($20.10) J :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $10.40, BTN calls $10.10 all in

      Villain is a 23/20/3.8AF w a fold to c-bet of 50%

      I valuebet the flop because he will call here with a really wide range, 8x, jx, Tx, 9x types of hands. Now i know he is pretty aggressive too so my plan is to make it look like i c-bet and then give up on the turn(I know that he bets when checked to almost 100%)

      So i checkraise the turn and now comes the problem.

      In retrospect i think i raise too small( should have been something like 11 or maybe just a push, now he is getting good odds to draw.

      As played should i cf river? Or maybe just cc and let him turn his onepairs into bluffs? The last option which might be the one i like most in retrospect is to c/f.

      Any thoughts?

      I like your turn c/r plan to get extra value out of floats and worse hands that has showdown value, but I would make it at least 9$ or maybe even 10$. Board is not that dry and I would rather pot commit myself tot hen shove any river than leade myself awkward spot on the river. Consider that was the worst card in the deck that made straights, flushes or two pairs most of his hand combos I think c/f is perfectly fine that spot. He would not shove AT and also he would not call your shove with that hand

      Best regards,
