      can i fold this river given the odds? should i have played it differently? maybe it was a fishy call.. i was thinking he can have sets and maybe a straight as well that plays this way but they probably raise by the turn right?

      First of all - what's the reason for opening this hand?
      Is this in our standard opening range?

      So on the flop you could go for $0.6.

      On the turn I think we can again look for a bigger bet - like $1.35.

      On the river why do we bet so much?
      I think that his overall range on the river is quite weak and it's hard for him to call this huge bet with KQ right? I'd just bet something like $2.3 here.
      Once he shoves it gets pretty ugly. It pretty much depends on what guy are we against.
      We are pretty much beat by Axs which are 6 combos and he could raise the flop with Ac9c, and then we need only two combos of worse flushes to make a profitable call - 8c7c/7c6c for example.
      It's close, but since this is NL10 I would never fold here since he could end up having KJ or QT or 99.
