      SB: $9.56 (239 bb)
      BB: $4.82 (120.5 bb)
      UTG: $12.81 (320.3 bb)
      MP: $4.07 (101.8 bb)
      CO: $2.27 (56.8 bb) 39/3/pf agg 0.6/fld cbet 85/WTSD 27 /135 hands
      BTN: $7.21 (180.3 bb) 23/18/fkld 3bet 50/pf agg 36 47 25/WTSD 21 cbet 43/hands 423

      Preflop: hero is BB with K :club: J :club:
      2 folds, CO calls $0.04, BTN raises to $0.16, SB folds, BB calls $0.12, CO calls $0.12

      the Co is a big fishy and the BU seems regy . I just call pre to keep the fish in

      Flop: ($0.50) K:heart: 4:diamond: 8:heart: (3 players)
      BB bets $0.38, CO folds, BTN calls $0.38

      i dont think the BU cbet a lot here so i lead to get value from draws or weaker hands and dont let the action goes check down. The bu call i think here he would raise strong hands like AK+ so i put him on draws or a KQ KT type hand.

      Turn: ($1.26) Q:club: (2 players)
      BB bets $0.84, BTN calls $0.84

      on the turn i prefer bet/folding to get called by draws.

      River: ($2.94) 8:club: (2 players)
      BB checks, BTN bets $1.46, BB folds

      on the river i dont think i can get more value . Also i dont think he bluffs draws cause his agg on the river is a bit low. But i dont know what u think ? the only hand though that makes sense is AK but with AK cause KQ have to raise the turn and with KT kJ i dont thjink he bets the river .. What u think ?

      Interesting spot here.

      I think everything until the river is fine.

      On the river, I do agree that he is hardly calling with worse here so checking here is the best option.
      The question is how to play - check/call or check/fold? I think that check/folding in this spot is better, since I don't really expect him to bluff with this sizing so I think this is more likely to be a value bet.
      Also it is questionable whether he calls a FD on the turn, so without information I'd check/fold as well.
