      SB posts SB 0.4 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.4 BB) Hero has 3:spade: A:spade:

      UTG calls 1 BB, fold, Hero raises to 5 BB, fold, fold, fold, UTG calls 4 BB

      Flop: (11.4 BB, 2 players) Q:diamond: T:spade: K:club:
      UTG checks, Hero bets 6 BB, UTG calls 6 BB

      Turn: (23.4 BB, 2 players) A:heart:
      UTG checks, Hero checks

      River: (23.4 BB, 2 players) Q:heart:
      UTG bets 22.24 BB, Hero calls 22.24 BB

      UTG shows 8:heart: 8:diamond: (Two Pair, Queens and Eights) (Pre 66%, Flop 66%, Turn 9%)
      Hero shows 3:spade: A:spade: (Two Pair, Aces and Queens) (Pre 34%, Flop 34%, Turn 91%)
      Hero wins 64.52 BB

      36 hands, VpiP 51. FCB 25%.

      Is my line check behind turn, call river ok? I dont think he ever bets pot size river with non fullhause or Jx. I call also because he is fish, and calling station.

      Hi mlatasrb,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: The sample is really small to really have an idea about how he plays.

      I would expect him to raise some 2p/sets on the flop so that river doesn't give him that many FH (other than AQ and some QT/KQ).

      It only comes down to him being able to bet this much for value with a straight (Jx).

      Considering we only need to be good 33% of the time and he can bluff here I don't mind the call (and I also agree that Jx would probably bet less).
