      River: ($3.25, 2 players) Q:heart:

      On flop I decided to check behind, as there were too many players in pot. When I hit fullhouse, I decided to raise for value (should I raise bigger?).

      I didn't want to see that Q on river. Do you think that it is ok to check behind? I didn't think I was going to get called with worse hands but was my reasoning okay?

      And what would you do, if villain would bet instead of checking?
