      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is BTN with A :diamond: Q :club:
      1 fold, CO raises to $0.30, Hero calls $0.30, 2 folds

      Flop: ($0.75) Q :spade: 9 :heart: J :spade: (2 players)
      CO bets $0.70, Hero calls $0.70

      Turn: ($2.15) K :heart: (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero checks

      River: ($2.15) 6 :spade: (2 players)
      CO bets $1.25, Hero calls $1.25

      Postlop: turn play is probably questionable. I checked behind because I didn't see him checking with a monster and I also thought that he wouldn't check a FD there. Neither did I see him calling with worse if I bet.
      River: actually not that easy a decision. Would he really bluff with a half-pot size bet? Looks like a valuebet that has been adjusted to the dangerous board structure to induce calls. But what can he represent other than a flush?

      Hello Avatars91,

      Doubt that he would be bluffing that often, especially while in our Check behind range we have a lot of FD type of hands but of course also some showdown value hands.

      Most likely if I'd go for such a hero-call then I am betting turn & river myself vs his passive approach where I wouldn't expect to see many Tx hands unless he planned to Check/Raise being PFA.

      Best Regards.

      1) Why would you suggest an overbet on the turn? Why on the river?

      2) As played would it be better to fold the river?

      Didn't meant it this way like overbetting. :D But rather Bet turn > Call river.

      2) As played would it be better to fold the river?

      Yeah, most likely I'd fold while almost everything got there. :P
