      River: ($3) 3 (2 players)
      Hero bets $3, BB folds

      $3 pot ($0.15 rake)
      Final Board: A A A 5 3
      Hero mucked Q A and won $2.85 ($1.65 net)
      BB mucked and lost (-$1.20 net)

      I'm not sure how to bet on the river. Is overbet shoving more profitable? Since hands like KK QQ, JJ may call sometimes a 5 and all other hands will fold to any large bet.

      Preflop: I think the call is fine for sure, we want to play more pots with the fish so I am not going to fold or 3b.

      Flop: He can be cbet bluffing with anything

      River: What range of hands are you putting him on, after checking the Turn? Don't you think he would just bet the Turn again with JJ-KK?

      I'm putting him on a weak range, either mid pairs or air. Potting or overbetting just doesn't make too much sense to me. Either bet small (half pot or less), or check and go for a check/raise.

      This really depends on the opponent. If he is passive, I will prefer leading out half pot. If I think he pot controls JJ-KK on the Turn, I think check/raise makes more sense.

      I think vs the average NL10 opponent I would just half pot the River.
