      Hello, I have no reads or stats on villain - I have a quick question only: Is there room for a value bet here, or was checking a reasonable move?

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Preflop: Hero is BU with 8, 7.
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, SB folds, BB calls $0.20.

      Hello,

      Preflop raising is fine.

      Definitely bet more on the flop - $0.6.

      Raising the turn is good here.

      I personally prefer betting the river too, and I'd make it around $2.5 and fold to a reraise.

      Best,
      Plamen
