      Poker Stars No-Limit Hold'em, $0.10 BB (5 handed) - Poker Stars Converter Tool from http://www.flopturnriver.com

      Villans stats: 20-14 (steal: 20) AF:2 AG%: 40

      Hero (BB) ($10.40)
      UTG ($10.70)
      MP ($10.45)
      Button ($9.66)
      SB ($10.81)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K, Q
      2 folds, Button bets $0.40, 1 fold, Hero calls $0.30

      Flop: ($0.85) Q, 6, J (2 players)
      Hero checks, Button bets $0.50, Hero calls $0.50

      Turn: ($1.85) 7 (2 players)
      Hero checks, Button bets $0.60, Hero raises $1.70, Button calls $1.10

      River: ($5.25) 3 (2 players)
      Hero bets $2, Button calls $2

      Total pot: $9.25

      Results below:

      Button had A, A (one pair, Aces).
      Hero had K, Q (one pair, Queens).
      Outcome: Button won $8.83

      I usually never see a Turn Bet 1/3 of the Pot with overpair, so I put him on J with High kicker or missed draw.

      While a turn raise could be reasonable (for thin value vs a range which contains few worse made hands and some draws), I think the same is untrue for the river. by betting so small we either open ourselves up against a bluff raise, or he simply folds his busted draws and calls with a range that beats us on average (no value).

      I would c/c The river.
