      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is BB with J :spade: A :spade:
      2 folds, CO raises to $1, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.75

      Flop: ($2.10) 4 :club: 3 :spade: J :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $1.00, Hero calls $1

      Turn: ($4.10) K :spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks

      River: ($4.10) 9 :heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.00, CO raises to $5, Hero calls $3

      CO: occasionally openlimping non-fullstacked fishy guy.
      Timing tells: villain almost snapchecks behind OTT

      River:

      The thin vBet should be fine, I suppose?
      The call should be bad because he is so passive but my reasoning at the time:

      He snapchecks the turn, not considering any other line -> should be an indication of a somewhat weak hand +
      There are not many hands that make sense (99, J9, sometimes K9? or maybe QT) +
      His sizing is not all that big, which gives me good odds + looks a bit weak as well.

      Hello Avatars91,

      What's the point of Betting the river? Do you see worse hands paying you there?

      What makes you think that he is bluffing the river whilst he could easily just double-barrel?

      Best Regards.
