      Preflop: Hero is CO with J:spade: J:club:
      UTG calls $0.50, MP folds, Hero raises to $2, BTN folds, SB raises to $6.75, 2 folds, Hero calls $4.75

      Flop: ($14.50) 6:heart: 9:diamond: A:heart: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($14.50) 8:heart: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($14.50) 8:spade: (2 players)
      SB bets $8, Hero?

      SB 19/17, 7,4% 3bet 80 hands.

      Should i bet on the flop? I thought that i have enough showdown value to check. He might ch/c with some Ax hands.

      On the turn? Should i bet to make him fold some hands with 1 :heart: and/or overcard/s.

      On the river? After he checked the flop and the turn i don`t think he has a very strong hand. He probably doesnt have much bluffs after he checked this flop. He might valuebet some weak Ax hands, but i`m not sure that he will fold them to a raise after my line, so i guess folding is best?

      I don't think betting the flop makes sense in your spot, check back is best.

      Turn I would usually check again with the intention of calling river. Betting the turn for thin value is also OK imo, a $8 bet like you faced on the river would be my sizing as well and that gives you the option to check river very often.
