      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.
