      Villain: 16/9 AF 1,9

      What to do on the river OOP just check/call, or like me thin value bet/fold? check/raise?

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      BB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BB with Q, K.
      3 folds, BU raises to $0.30, SB folds, Hero calls $0.20.

      Flop: ($0.65) K, 3, 5 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $0.31, Hero calls $0.31.

      Turn: ($1.27) 9 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $0.60, Hero calls $0.60.

      River: ($2.47) 2 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.60, BU calls $0.60.

      Final Pot: $3.67.

      I don't go for thin value bet I'll go for a rather thicker value bet~1.30. And ofcourse bet/fold.

      Hi Chris,

      Preflop: calling is fine. We can also 3-bet as a bluff but our hand is strong enough to defend.

      Flop/turn: looks fine

      River: So far we've had a somewhat passive guy bet into us 2 streets so we know that he likes his hand.

      If we check I would find it hard to ck/call but rather ck/fold because I can expect him to valuebet mostly only better hands.

      So the donk/fold line is better if we don't expect to get bluff raised (which I don't) and we think he has enough worse hands that can call (and he has KJ, KT, Kx suited and maybe some TT-QQ pairs).
