      $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 5 Players

      Hero (MP): $51.25 (102.5 bb)
      CO: $53.29 (106.6 bb)
      BTN: $57.41 (114.8 bb)
      SB: $77.27 (154.5 bb)
      BB: $75.16 (150.3 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with 9 T
      Hero raises to $1.50, 2 folds, SB calls $1.25, BB folds

      Flop: ($3.50) 7 A T (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $2.50, SB calls $2.50

      Turn: ($8.50) J (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($8.50) Q (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $8.50


      opponent is 19/17 310 hands

      Flop: I think I have a profitable c-bet here and also position to control the pot in later streets.

      Turn: Bad card for me(?) so i decided to check back for pot control and was ready to fold on most rivers if he bets.

      River: Now when he checks here I'm not sure if my pair is good enough for showdown so I decided that it is better to turn my hand into a bluff and represent a very strong hand since I think he expects me to check behind all hands with marginal showdown value. In my opinion he would donk bet anything strong enough to make a reasonable call here for the excat same reason. Also I think at the time the hand was played I was a tight solid player in his eyes making it even harder for him to make a light call.
      Is my bet sizing good?

      Hello DannyJQ,

      But your river Bet doesn't make sense at all. Cause clearly with every made flush you Bet the turn nor you ever Bet this way and other strong hands on the river.

      Best Regards.
