      Hero (SB): $5.14 (102.8 bb)
      BB: $4 (80 bb)
      UTG: $6.34 (126.8 bb)
      MP: $5.72 (114.4 bb)
      CO: $3.44 (68.8 bb)
      BTN: $3.39 (67.8 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A K
      4 folds, Hero raises to $0.20, BB calls $0.15

      Flop: ($0.40) T T A (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.25, BB calls $0.25

      Turn: ($0.90) Q (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.43, BB calls $0.43

      River: ($1.76) K (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.84, BB raises to $3.12 and is all-in,

      I was playing for some sort of control after the flop bet but the board just got uglier.
      Opponent was a total unknown...it was literally his first hand!!

      Is this a bet/fold river, check/fold, or anything else ?

      Any comments on bet sizing would be good too.

      I'd cbet $0.3 on the flop for value and to protect your hand. Same on the turn, if you want to bet, bet 2/3 to 3/4 pot, so something like $0.7 is good, otherwise you're giving him too good odds to call with his draws.

      On the river I'd check/fold, as there's not much you're ahead of and his shove indicates a lot of strength. I'd put villain on a straight.

      Hi,

      betting river is interesting. Players needs to be calling station that he can call you down with worse hands, but I guess it is a little better than c/f.
      I would also bet 0.65$ on the turn

      best regards,

      Thanks.for that. The idea of the bet on the river was really to try and get information (as it was the first hand he'd played) I could use later hence the small.size.
