      Hero (UTG): $10.00 - VPIP: 23, PFR: 19, 3B: 5, AF: 4,4, Hands: 44823
      CO: $8.01 - VPIP: 63, PFR: 0, 3B: 0, AF: 2,0, Hands: 16
      BTN: $5.65 - VPIP: 29, PFR: 7, 3B: 0, AF: 1,0, Hands: 14
      SB: $10.00 - VPIP: 20, PFR: 14, 3B: 12, AF: 2,0, WTS: 28, Hands: 127
      BB: $3.85 - VPIP: 17, PFR: 0, 3B: 0, AF: 0,0, Hands: 12

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is UTG with J :club: K :spade:
      Hero raises to $0.35, 2 folds, SB calls $0.30, 1 fold

      Flop: ($0.80) 2 :club: K :club: 3 :club: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.50, SB calls $0.50

      Turn: ($1.80) T :heart: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($1.80) 9 :spade: (2 players)
      SB bets $1.20, Hero calls $1.20

      What makes me scratch my head first in this hand is whether or not I should have bet the turn. I can imagine villain calling with quite a few PP + FD combos on the flop, maybe even just with an A high FD so I maybe should have bet the turn for protection and value.

      I probably also shouldn't have called the river bet as there are few if any hands that are check/calling the flop and betting the river that I beat. Don't think that he is valuebetting worse there and neither is he bluffing all that often there.

      Hello Avatars91,

      Preflop: From UTG I would rather advice not to raise even such hands. Even if you have very fishy opponents on the table. More often your hand could be dominated.

      As played
      Postflop: Why do you skip the turn Bet? Instead of Checking behind you should be rather protecting your hand. If you Check behind you kinda induce him to bluff against you.

      Best Regards.

      I agree.

      As played, would it make sense to fold the river? I, of course, might have induced a bluff, but then again, are there that many hands that check/call the flop and bet the river that I beat?

      That one I am not really gonna answer cause this wasn't really my idea to Check behind. I don't really know what you had in mind, either to bluff-induce, either to take pot control or whatever. You must understand that I can't put myself on the table and switch your thoughts. :D If you went for bluff-induce then know the answer.
