      IPoker, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 8 Players


      MP3: $10.15 (101.5 bb)
      CO: $10 (100 bb)
      BTN: $21.38 (213.8 bb) VPIP:36 PFR:23 AF:2.6 AgFrq:41 WTS:46 (72 hands)
      SB: $12.43 (124.3 bb)
      BB: $11.01 (110.1 bb)
      UTG+2: $14.69 (146.9 bb)
      MP1: $14.02 (140.2 bb)
      Hero (MP2): $16.92 (169.2 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with 5 5
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.40, 2 folds, BTN calls $0.40, 2 folds

      Flop: ($0.95) 2 5 2 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.71, BTN calls $0.71

      Turn: ($2.37) T (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.77, BTN calls $1.77

      River: ($5.91) 7 (2 players)
      Hero bets ????

      Should I try to bluff induce or bet. If the answer is bet then how much?

      Should I have slow played from the start? But villian could have checked behind.

      I think betting again (probably about $4.50) has to be the best choice without reads. He can easily check behind or make a thin value bet/fold with the same hand that he will call your normal river bet.

      Extracting value OOP is always difficult and a straight bet/bet/bet line is a good one to take IMO, again unless of course you have reads that he always spazzes out when people are passive.

      Hello cyclist52,

      Depends a lot how we see the opponent, if you think he is even capable of bluffing the river with missed draws then you can as well Check/Ship it but more likely I'd be towards just betting myself for value while he has enough of PPs which may Call us down.

      If I'd Bet here then accordingly how loose he is but mostly without any information $4 should be good enough.

      Best Regards.

      Looking at the villain in question he probably floated you for two streets with AQo, so you did well :)
