      I think you just didn't size your bets properly. Raise to $1 on the flop, $2 on the Turn and you have a pot size bet on the River.

      I think the more interesting issue is whether you should checkraise the River or bet. Against someone with a lot of draws I would check to induce (especially if the 8 didn't get there and they have busted JT and flush draws). Don't forget you block 2 Queens which makes it 50% less likely that he has a queen himself.

      But given that the board isn't super coordinated (though 2 flush draws are busted) and UTG1 is a nit which makes him highly weighted towards AQ and KK/AA, I shove myself.

      Hi,

      I think you mostly see there KK/AA (or sometimes AKs that does not bet himself). Since flushdraw missed, he would call you very often down, although I don´t think he would always call you if you shove. So I would b/c river 4.2$

      best regards,
