      Poker Stars, $0.08/$0.16 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players


      Hero (UTG): $16 (100 bb)
      MP: $18.36 (114.8 bb)
      CO: $7.63 (47.7 bb)
      BTN: $15.72 (98.3 bb)
      SB: $14.48 (90.5 bb)
      BB: $10.24 (64 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with A A
      Hero raises to $0.64, 2 folds, BTN calls $0.64, 2 folds

      Flop: ($1.52) 2 K J (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.28, BTN calls $1.28

      Turn: ($4.08) 4 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      I plan to play check/call here. I don't want to bet and get raised.

      River: ($4.08) 2 (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.08, BTN folds

      Check river to induce bluff?

      Results: $4.08 pot ($0.18 rake)
      Final Board: 2 K J 4 2
      Hero mucked A A and won $3.90 ($1.98 net)
      BTN mucked and lost (-$1.92 net)

      Hello maheepsangari,

      Most likely I would also Bet the turn while the opponent looks even kind of loose type of player. :) But otherwise well, both plays are fine, don't really know him and therefore can't say if he is capable of bluffing or not.

      Best Regards.
