      BTN: $13.49 (134.9 bb)
      Hero (SB): $10 (100 bb)
      BB: $10.85 (108.5 bb)
      UTG: $10.40 (104 bb)
      MP: $17.42 (174.2 bb)
      CO: $5 (50 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 2 A
      3 folds, BTN raises to $0.20, Hero raises to $0.70, BB folds, BTN calls $0.50

      Flop: ($1.50) 2 Q Q (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.80, BTN calls $0.80

      Turn: ($3.10) 6 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      River: ($3.10) K (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $1.50, Hero folds

      $3.10 pot ($0.14 rake)
      Final Board: 2 Q Q 6 K
      BTN mucked and won $2.96 ($1.46 net)
      Hero mucked 2 A and lost (-$1.50 net)

      I just had 11 hands on him (70/50), he might be a fish, or a reg, i dont know.

      Preflop, flop is standard i guess. But what can he bet on this river? He might have a K, but apart from that, he cant really vbet anything else here. Should i bluffcatch?

      Hey Absolutism,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: The problem here is that he can/may bluff with a better hand (ex: 33 that calls the flop). But I do agree that overall he doesn't rep much and if he wanted to bluff he'd usually do it on the turn.

      So I would not bluffcatch.

      Apart from not check/calling the river, did i played it fine?

      I mean, the flop cbet is ok? Or should i check/call here instead?

      Turn: when played like this (cbet flop), should i check/call here (cause he would check back weak showdown value, and bet bluffs/nuts), or I should check/fold all the way?
