      BB: $25.41 (127.1 bb)
      UTG: $37 (185 bb)
      Hero (MP): $41.67 (208.4 bb)
      CO: $22.41 (112.1 bb)
      BTN: $20.70 (103.5 bb)
      SB: $20 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with A Q
      UTG folds, Hero raises to $0.60, 2 folds, SB calls $0.50, BB folds

      Flop: ($1.40) J 3 7 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.80, SB calls $0.80

      Turn: ($3) A (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $2, SB calls $2

      River: ($7) K (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      $7 pot ($0.35 rake)
      Final Board: J 3 7 A K
      Hero mucked A Q and lost (-$3.40 net)
      SB showed 7 7 and won $6.65 ($3.25 net)


      3 broad way river is not good for triple barrel so should I check?

      I think turn bet is better than c/c because I have good kicker.

      Hi Gonchan,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Flop cbet on such a dry board as a bluff is fine.

      On the turn we can even consider checking it back because I doubt a guy like him will call us with much worse and by checking back we allow him a chance to bluffcatch lighter on the river (or to bluff certain hands).

      As played the river can't really be a valuebet because I can't see anything worse that can call. QJ/JT is almost always folding.
