      PokerStars - $0.05 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      MP: $5.07
      CO: $5.99
      BTN: $5.94
      Hero (SB): $5.68
      BB: $5.00
      UTG: $8.49

      Hero posts SB $0.02, BB posts BB $0.05

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.07) Hero has Q:club: A:club:

      fold, fold, CO raises to $0.20, BTN calls $0.20, Hero raises to $0.85, fold, fold, BTN calls $0.65

      Flop: ($1.95, 2 players) 4:spade: A:diamond: 5:diamond:
      Hero bets $1.25, BTN calls $1.25

      Turn: ($4.45, 2 players) 9:heart:
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      River: ($4.45, 2 players) K:club:
      Hero checks, BTN bets $3.84 and is all-in, Hero calls $3.58 and is all-in

      BTN 23/19/2/6/WTSD 19/ WSD 100 over 142
      CO 29/24/2/7/ATS 50/ FST3b 100 over 52

      BTN's CC/C3b range should be something like this:
      JJ-22,AQs-AJs,AQo

      On the flop I'm almost 3to1 favorite against his range. What he will call cbet with? I think something like this:
      JJ-99,55-44,AQs,AQo

      On the turn, I check And he checks back. I don't think he would check back with a set. Although we already have less left than pot size, but he will have to bet almost full size pot on the river if he wants to go all in. Even 1/3 bet on the turn would make going broke against me much easier.
      Therefore, I don't see sets in his range very often:

      JJ-TT,AQs,AQo
      This is his range on the river. I check, and he pushes. It could be strangely played set, it could be busted draw, even if I didn't include them in his range, because it's 3bet pot, but who knows. Maybe his turning his TT or JJ into bluff?

      I think my decision on the table was right. It's easy to say, now then I know what he had :D At the table I thought for almost all my time bank.

      Hello staktas,

      If you are turning your hand into bluff-catcher like this I would never fold it on river. Pretty standard play. :) What do you think he is repping there? Would he ever Check behind an Ace?

      Best Regards.
