      Preflop: Hero is BU with 8, 8.
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.08, Hero calls $0.08, 2 folds, BB folds.

      CO checks, Hero bets $0.08, CO raises to $0.18, Hero calls $0.10.

      River: ($0.55) Q (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero checks.

      Final Pot: $0.55.
      Results follow: Hero shows two pairs, eights and sevens(8 8). CO shows a pair of sevens(9 A). Hero wins with two pairs, eights and sevens(8 8).



      after he checked the flop I doubt it hit him, the turn is a card that probably doesnt hit his range so I raised, after I got check raised I didnt really buy it so called.
      river was somewhat scary for me cuz it might hit his range so I just checked behind trying not to risk getting reraised again.

      Should I have bet for value on river? Or did I have to do it on the flop after he checked with J on the board, or maybe 3 bet on the turn?

      Thanks in advance

      Hello HrabriLavek,

      Bet the flop as he doesn't show interest into the pot. :) Otherwise not much to comment. We can't value-bet the river cause clearly not getting called from worse.

      Best Regards.
