      Preflop: Hero is BTN with 2 A
      MP1 folds, MP2 calls $0.04, Hero raises to $0.18, CO calls $0.16, 2 folds

      Flop: ($0.44) K A Q (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero bets $0.33, CO calls $0.33

      Turn: ($1.10) 4 (2 players)

      Final Board: K A Q 4 2
      Hero showed 2 A and lost (-$2.55 net)
      CO showed 4 A and won $4.67 ($2.12 net)

      Opponent is kinda fish-passive.He limps although i got only 34 hands.I saw him limp/call pre,and c/c many flops.
      Flop is very draw but with this opponent i think my raise is for value and protection although i had no kicker.I think he could call me with any xx :diamond: ,or better Kx :diamond: ,Qx :diamond: .
      My basic question is : Should i bet this river with my 2 pair or not ?
      What about bet sizes ?

      Thanks !

      Sth wrong with the post,villain is on the SB.

      Hi enterg,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Both flop and turn cbet are fine but since the turn cbet is a thin valuebet I would make it a bit smaller. We are targeting 2nd pair or worse (and some draws).

      As played the river should be a bet because we now beat most 2p hands and since draws missed villain can still call some Kx, Qx. Your bet size is fine as well.
