      I was confused by his turn check behind, I thought his flop raise was a bluff raise or agressive flushdraw raise. Is a river bluff justified then?

      PokerStars - $0.02 NL FAST (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players

      BTN: 149 BB (VPIP: 50.00, PFR: 0.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 8)
      Hero (UTG): 127 BB

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has J:club: Q:club:

      Hero raises to 3 BB, fold, fold, BTN calls 3 BB, fold, fold

      Flop: (7.5 BB, 2 players) 2:heart: A:club: 9:club:
      Hero bets 4 BB, BTN raises to 17 BB, Hero calls 13 BB

      Turn: (41.5 BB, 2 players) K:spade:
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      River: (41.5 BB, 2 players) 8:diamond:
      Hero bets 29 BB, BTN calls 29 BB

      Hero shows J:club: Q:club: (High Card, Ace) (Pre 47%, Flop 35%, Turn 27%)
      BTN shows 9:diamond: A:heart: (Two Pair, Aces and Nines) (Pre 53%, Flop 65%, Turn 73%)
      BTN wins 96 BB

      I wouldn't bluff such loose guy on river. Hero is not representing anything else than busted flush-draw, so it's easy call. And even if your villain doesn't think that deep, would he never fold his Ax on NL2? No.

      CH/fold river.

      Usually on these stakes people don't tend to bluff a lot with raising against cbet especially on Axx boards, so being OOP in this spot against his big sizing I'd just fold.

      As played, just check both turn and river. We don't really need to bluff in this spot against unknown opponent plus with QJ high we do beat all his potential bluffs.
