      Pre-Flop: ($0.06, 6 players) HERO is UTG K:club: J:club:
      HERO raises to $0.16, 1 fold, CO calls $0.16, 3 folds

      River: Q:diamond: ($2.46, 2 players)
      HERO bets $0.76, CO raises to $1.52, HERO folds

      Villain is 70/30, AF: 1.6, SD:36, FCB: 41, fold turn CB: 20, 162h


      Standard CB with FD.

      Betting for value from FD`s, Kx, Qx, maybe even 7x, 88-JJ.

      c/f is an option, but I still can get value from Kx, maybe 7x, 88-JJ. I think I had to bet slightly less to target villains whole pay-off range.
      Bet-size still is reasonable I think.

      I don't think preflop is so standard. It is a bit loose. If you take a look at OP SH chart of PokerStrategy you wont find KJs hands in standard open raising table.

      So consider of tighten a bit if table is loose.

      As played i like your flop bet and your turn bet.

      I think very questionable is you river bet sizing because this is very weak. I don't know exactly what are you representing with this this river bet, this is maybe question for coaches but for sure not a made hand.

      Maybe river line check/call if villain bets small and check/fold if villain bet more.

      Preflop/flop/turn: looks good. Turn we can bet even bigger now since most 3rd pair hands fold to our larger bet anyway and what continues are Qx, Kx (very rare) and draws.

      River: Once the Qx doubles we just lost a big part of the range we can valuebet against.

      Since there is a big chance (unless he is a huge station) that he folded hands like 7x or 88 on the turn there isn't much we can get value from.

      Our small bet can also induce him to try a bluff.

      Since there isn't much we can get value from I would check and even consider check/folding since he doesn't seem overly aggressive and his range is full of Qx hands and some missed draws.

      Now, if we do put him on 7x, 88-JJ there may be an argument for betting really small but we still face the same problem of him having many better hands and can bluff missed draws.
