      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is SB with 8 :spade: 8 :club:
      3 folds, BTN raises to $0.50, Hero calls $0.40, 1 fold

      Flop: ($1.25) 9 :club: A :spade: 2 :club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      Turn: ($1.25) 3 :club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.75, BTN calls $0.75

      River: ($2.75) J :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $2.25, Hero ?

      river agg freq: 100(3)

      i don't see him valuebetting a J or a 9, maybe not even an A with this sizing ...
      should i be more inclined to call a smaller bet and fold to this larger sizing ?

      thank you

      Hi.

      Preflop: I slightly prefer 3betting here, not only for thin value, but also to isolate him from BB. I think calling is also fine, especially when BB is tight. If BB is loose aggro I definitely prefer 3betting here.

      Turn: I don't think you have too much value betting here. Probably check/folding still. Remember that this guy is passive and he may just randomly check a ton of KK QQ AX on the Flop.

      River: As played, very easy fold. I don't think he necessarily bluffs the River with his busted draws like KcQs. In short, don't call down light vs passive opponents.

      Thanks.
