      UTG+2 showed 8 Q and lost (-$0.65 net)
      Hero showed 6 6 and won $1.87 ($1.22 net)

      Should I have bet on the river?
      (in case you are wondering, I had perfect reads from both players to be almost sure they had nothing more than a draw, and I was right indeed, and I was obviously ready to fold in case of a club or a different more aggressive type of action)

      Hi,

      If they had draws then they can´t really call your river bet. With showdown value I´m happy to check there back. I think river bet for value would be too thin and mostly would get called only by better hands

      best regards,
