      UTG: $5.25 (105 bb)
      MP: $12.29 (245.8 bb)
      CO: $4.83 (96.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with Q Q
      UTG folds, MP raises to $0.18, CO folds, Hero raises to $0.50, 2 folds, MP calls $0.32

      Flop: ($1.07) 4 K 4 (2 players)
      MP bets $0.51, Hero calls $0.51

      Turn: ($2.09) J (2 players)
      MP checks, Hero checks

      River: ($2.09) J (2 players)
      MP checks, Hero checks

      $2.09 pot ($0.09 rake)
      Final Board: 4 K 4 J J
      Hero showed Q Q and won $2 ($0.99 net)
      MP showed 2 2 and lost (-$1.01 net)

      Villain is unknown.

      Am I right to think there is no value in betting river since it's a way ahead/way behind situation?

      Hello cheekopeh,

      You could still Bet the turn as well and protect your hand whilst his donk the flop already was kinda weak and could be draws. But of course Checking is fine but then again you have to leave the pot alone on the river once he bets.

      Best Regards.
