      RIVER ($3.20) Q:club: J:heart: 2:diamond: K:club: T:spade:

      Hero bets $1, BB calls $1

      Villain is 68/2/1.1. Fold to CB = 67

      Has limp/called w/JJ so sets are in his range. But haven't seen him slowplay a big hand, usually raises flop/min raise turn.

      Pre: Raise for high card value + with the intention of cbetting nearly any flop as he's folding quite often.

      Flop: Hit bottom pair. cbet as planned with the intention to barrel on a 2/K/heart. When he calls here he could have something like AK/AT/KT/K9/Qx/Jx/2x/T9/89. I think sets will raise and he'll fold all his other trash.

      Turn: Hit my K so barrel for value as planned. Only hands in his range that K hits are AK/AT/KT/K9/T9 so expect to be ahead of his range here.

      River: The T sucks but as I'd expect T9/AT, sets and some 2pair hands have raised already don't see much in his range that beats me so decided to go for some very thin value hoping he'll make a crying call with Kx/Qx/Jx.

      But is it too thin? Is my sizing ok on river?

      Was playing b/f on all three streets

      Preflop raising with this hand is fine by me. This hand has a good potential against such and opponent since we could overflush him.

      Cbetting the flop is fine.

      I'd bet around $1.1-1.2 on the turn.

      I don't think betting on the river against this opponent is too thin and your sizing is good.
      Don't think he ever folds a made hand against this size.
