      I really thought his bet on the river was some kind of weird blockbet, like a bad queen or even jack trying to get a cheap showdown..

      PokerStars - $0.05 NL FAST (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players

      SB: 189 BB (VPIP: 31.37, PFR: 21.57, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 53)
      Hero (MP): 165.2 BB

      SB posts SB 0.4 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.4 BB) Hero has A:diamond: Q:spade:

      fold, Hero raises to 3 BB, fold, fold, SB calls 2.6 BB, fold

      Flop: (7 BB, 2 players) Q:diamond: 9:diamond: J:heart:
      SB checks, Hero bets 4 BB, SB calls 4 BB

      Turn: (15 BB, 2 players) 4:club:
      SB checks, Hero bets 9 BB, SB calls 9 BB

      River: (33 BB, 2 players) K:club:
      SB bets 1 BB, Hero raises to 10 BB, SB calls 9 BB

      Hero shows A:diamond: Q:spade: (One Pair, Queens) (Pre 25%, Flop 74%, Turn 84%)
      SB shows K:heart: A:spade: (One Pair, Kings) (Pre 75%, Flop 26%, Turn 16%)
      SB wins 50.8 BB

      River is just a call, I'd treat that min-bet as a check. Now there's just too many hands that beat us and you can't make better one to fold by raising (at least when you raise that small)

      Hey MarliesB,

      I'd probably bet a little bigger on the flop, lots of worse hands not folding on this texture.

      On the river when the board runs 4-to-straight it's a really bad board for extracting value. Even if villain does play a bad Q/J this way you shouldn't necessarily expect him to pay off a raise. My preferred option is just to flat river. If villain had just checked it wouldn't normally be a good spot to value bet.
