      Full Tilt, $0.10/$0.25 No Limit Hold'em Cash, Rush, 6 Players

      BB: $25.35 (101.4 bb)
      Hero (UTG): $33.17 (132.7 bb)
      MP: $25 (100 bb)
      CO: $52.34 (209.4 bb) 33/26 (27h)
      BTN: $25.97 (103.9 bb)
      SB: $31.09 (124.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with K A
      Hero raises to $0.75, MP folds, CO calls $0.75, 3 folds

      Flop: ($1.85) K 5 6 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.80, CO calls $0.80

      Turn: ($3.45) T (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.40, CO calls $2.40

      River: ($8.25) J (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.70, CO raises to $11, Hero folds

      Now I hate my 3rd barrel, because the only worse hand that might call is KQ.

      When villain raises, I can't see anything I beat. Maybe 78s turned into a bluff, but there are many more combos of slowplayed sets, KT/KJ that spiked 2pair etc.

      So check/call >> bet/fold?

      Is river even a check/fold?? He doesn't value bet with worse, and it doesn't seem a great spot for him to bluff.

      Your opponent seems quite loose, I would probably valuebet river. My least favourite option would be to check/fold, if we check he could definitely valuebet KQ, and have some random 78s and stuff. But since he seems so loose I prefer a valauebet over all. Vs a nit it's fine to c/f here.
