      On that board and after his limp/call pf, his betting pattern means business, 2pair/set. To me is an easy fold on the river.

      Hi Glazenburg,
      On the flop, you should be a little more, around 4$ (roughly 2/3 pot) for maximum value.
      On the turn however, pot control is the best line in position, since his limp/call UTG will often be a small pair that could have connected with the board. On top of that, after a check behind on the turn, your opponent will often bet the river with any pair, so you'll get maximum value from all hands that you beat, and lose the minimum against sets, two pair or 56

      By the way, once you reach Gold status, make sure to read the pot control article, it's very helpful for this kind of situations
