      BTN: $7.23 - VPIP: 63, PFR: 25, 3B: 17, AF: 1,0, Hands: 8
      SB: $3.32 - VPIP: 43, PFR: 29, 3B: 0, AF: 0,0, Hands: 7
      Hero (BB): $13.57 - VPIP: 27, PFR: 22, 3B: 9, AF: 2,7, Hands: 75753
      UTG: $32.13 - VPIP: 25, PFR: 19, 3B: 7, AF: 1,6, Hands: 235
      MP: $10.79 - VPIP: 14, PFR: 11, 3B: 8, AF: 0,0, Hands: 106
      CO: $5.93 - VPIP: 19, PFR: 15, 3B: 15, AF: 0,0, Hands: 27

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is BB with Q :club: J :diamond:
      UTG raises to $0.15, 2 folds, BTN calls $0.15, 1 fold, Hero calls $0.10

      Flop: ($0.47) J :heart: J :spade: 3 :diamond: (3 players)
      Hero checks, UTG bets $0.34, BTN folds, Hero calls $0.34

      Turn: ($1.15) 4 :heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG bets $0.65, Hero calls $0.65

      River: ($2.45) 9 :spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.50, UTG folds

      UTG raises 19% from that spot in 42 occasions.

      What is more +EV in your opinion in this spot? Check or bet.

      As played and without having much time to look at his stats closer in game I though he would be calling with a pair there but maybe I should have checked to keep his range wide and induce a third barrel?

      Also in case I check river, c/c is good? I dont see how I can c/r.

      Thank you.

      Hi Elchipriota,

      Preflop: I think that since we will be OOP vs two people we can just fold this preflop (versus UTG opener).

      Postflop: As played I don't mind donking the river because he may check back his overpairs. However I think it is a donk/fold.

      There's an argument for a light value raise on the flop versus overpairs but he also has some AJ/KJ in his range (and some sets).
