      Hero (BTN): $19.97 (199.7 bb)
      SB: $12 (120 bb)
      BB: $11.03 (110.3 bb)
      UTG: $5.41 (54.1 bb)
      MP: $9.67 (96.7 bb)
      CO: $9.39 (93.9 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with 8:club: K:diamond:
      2 folds, CO calls $0.10, Hero raises to $0.50, 2 folds, CO calls $0.40

      Flop: ($1.15) 4:heart: Q:diamond: 8:spade: (2 players)
      CO bets $0.60, Hero calls $0.60

      Turn: ($2.35) 6:heart: (2 players)
      CO bets $0.90, Hero calls $0.90

      River: ($4.15) J:heart: (2 players)
      CO bets $2, Hero calls $2

      I thought it did not make much sense for villain to take this line with Qx on such a dry flop. Given that what other reasons do I have to make the calldown?
      In the little experience I gathered it seems that villains are donking very weak and folding with a very high frequency to flop raises even on the dryest flops. Decided against because of my assumed showdown value.

      If I decide that I have showdowns value on the flop then I'm tied to making the calldown almost always, right?

      Hello DeMarcohsp,

      The J on the river is a very bad card to Call, cause it completes a lot of his range as Jx/SD or whatsoever, so I would be rather folding to it. :)

      Best Regards.
