      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is BB with 2 :diamond: J :heart:
      3 folds, BTN calls $0.25, 1 fold, Hero checks

      Flop: ($0.60) K :club: T :club: 6 :club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      Turn: ($0.60) T :heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      River: ($0.60) K :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.50, Hero calls $0.50

      I thought that he is unlikely to have either Tx or Kx because of his passive flop+turn play and I also thought that he would be rather happy to check down with Ahigh or Qhigh and for that reason I put him mostly on a bluff and sometimes on a thin valuebet with JJ or QQ (though these hands I would expect him to raise preflop with) especially with a small PP that has lost all its value on the river.
      How bad is the call here exactly? I guess that I can't tell for sure that he is not randomly betting Ax or even Qx in this spot and because of that I likely should have just played it safe.
