      BTN: $8.70 (87 bb)

      MP: $15.14 (151.4 bb)
      CO: $30.05 (300.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with J Q
      Hero raises to $0.30, 2 folds, BTN calls $0.30, 2 folds

      Flop: ($0.75) 2 Q 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.56, BTN calls $0.56

      Turn: ($1.87) 3 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.40, BTN calls $1.40

      River: ($4.67) 3 (2 players)
      Hero bets $3, BTN raises to $6.44 and is all-in, Hero calls $3.44

      $17.55 pot ($0.87 rake)
      Final Board: 2 Q 5 3 3
      BTN showed A 4 and won $16.68 ($7.98 net)
      Hero showed J Q and lost (-$8.70 net)

      Villain is a fish who calls almost every flop and turn.

      River should I have bet smaller. I put myself in a situation where I have good pot odds to call even though there's a good chance I'm beat.

      Hi Tommy,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Can you really expect villain to raise as a bluff on the river? Do we beat any of his value range?

      Sure it may look like we get good pot odds but we still need to win 20% plus. So if we never/rarely win how can we consider them good odds?

      So river can still be a bet fold but I'd probably bet about half pot.
