      The villain is unknown.

      Party No-Limit Hold'em, $0.04 BB (6 handed) - Party Converter Tool from http://www.flopturnriver.com

      UTG ($1.32)
      SB ($3.10)
      Hero (Button) ($4.73)
      BB ($4.28)
      MP ($4)
      CO ($8.25)

      Preflop: Hero is Button with J, A
      3 folds, Hero bets $0.12, 1 fold, BB raises $0.36, Hero calls $0.28

      Flop: ($0.82) J, A, 4 (2 players)
      BB bets $0.58, Hero calls $0.58

      Turn: ($1.98) J (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($1.98) 10 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $1.32

      Is my play here against unknown good? Also, should I have bet smaller on the river?

      Hi Acetbfish,

      Preflop: Why are you calling a 3-bet with a dominated hand against an unknown?

      This is a perfect example of a 4-bet or fold scenario.

      As played we can even raise the flop and once he checks the turn I doubt we get much more value from him if we check back so I'd prefer to bet there to get value from AQ/AK that take "pot control" line.
