      Preflop: Hero is BB with Q A
      2 folds, BTN raises to $2, SB folds, Hero raises to $6.50, BTN calls $4.50

      Flop: ($13.25) K 7 4 (2 players)
      Hero bets $7, BTN calls $7

      Turn: ($27.25) A (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $6.75, Hero calls $6.75

      Hero checks, BTN bets $10.25
      Hero calls $10.25

      $61.25 pot ($3 rake)
      Final Board: K 7 4 A 8
      BTN showed T A and lost (-$30.50 net)
      Hero showed Q A and won $58.25 ($27.75 net)

      Villain was pretty loose with preflop calling but seemed pretty fit/fold postflop and sometimes was aggresive when it was checked to him . On the river should I shove for value ?

      Hey AriGold1980,

      3bet preflop is fine, BTN is opening somewhat wide and not folding to 3bets.

      Flop cbet as a bluff is fine.

      Turn check is decent, not many worse hands will call. You should check/call of course.

      I don't really like a check/raise river here, I don't think you will get called by worse. Another pontential line is donk/fold river for half pot forcing villain to pay you off with marginal hands that he might check back. His turn bet sizing suggests he may have medium showdown value.
