      Preflop: Hero is CO with T 9
      4 folds, Hero raises to $1, 2 folds, BB calls $0.75

      Flop: ($2.10) 9 2 5 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $1.33, BB calls $1.33

      Turn: ($4.76) A (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($4.76) J (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $1.50, BB calls $1.50

      Results:
      $7.76 pot ($0.42 rake)
      Final Board: 9 2 5 A J
      Hero showed T 9 and lost (-$3.83 net)
      BB showed Q J and won $7.34 ($3.51 net)

      BB Stats: VPIP: 60, PFR: 19, 3B: 5, AF: 0,6, Hands: 96

      His check on river gave me a bit of confidence as I saw it really really weak, or an attempt of a weird check/raise in the worst case (but given his AF...).
      So I bet 1/3 to have an easy fold in case of a raise, and to extract value from various 9x, 5x and lulz hands like K and Q high (it's not the first time).

      Hello AtrociousNightmare,

      Rather Bet the turn as well than face a huge Bet on the river which is difficult to Call. Might as well even Bet for value + also can pick the sizing yourself.

      Though betting the river doesn't really make sense unless it's for value, so Check it behind there, you ain't making better hands to fold.

      Best Regards.
