      PartyGaming - $0.10 NL - Holdem - 5 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      UTG: $10.40
      Hero (CO): $15.96
      BTN: $18.90
      SB: $10.00
      BB: $15.49

      SB posts SB $0.05, BB posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.15) Hero has A:heart: J:spade:

      UTG raises to $0.30, Hero calls $0.30, fold, fold, fold

      Flop: ($0.75, 2 players) J:club: 7:spade: 4:club:
      UTG bets $0.70, Hero calls $0.70

      Turn: ($2.15, 2 players) 5:heart:
      UTG bets $1.50, Hero calls $1.50

      River: ($5.15, 2 players) 9:heart:
      UTG checks, Hero checks

      villain 38/38 (20 hands) so unknown pretty much

      His betting looks quite strong but when he checks the river to me, should i just take the cheap showdown, can i get thin value of worse Jx hands betting like 2 bucks? and easily muck to a raise

      i wouldn't. you're against UTG range which bets pretty strongly, i'd say AJ, JJ+

      he probably wants to c/c the river to let you bluff some missed draws or something

      [edit: just noticed he's 38/38. but i like to check behind anyway just to see which hands this guy plays like this...]

      Hello Castle93,

      Preflop: Not really a huge fan either here flatting from CO and having so many people behind us who could easily squeeze. Most likely I'd just 3bet it.

      As played
      Postflop: Both ways are fine, i guess vs such a high PFR you could even Bet the river for value cause he may as well even have worse there.

      Best Regards.
