      River: ($5.79) 2 (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.79 and is all-in, BB calls $3.79

      Not sure how bad my play was...
      Villain seemed loose/passive.

      When CO raises and I'm OOP, maybe I should make my raise a bit bigger...

      As villain called, I still bet for value, but thinking he has a strong hand.

      I don't think villain has 2pair combos, but he might have a set here, however as he is not interested I still think I cna bet for value, he could have other pp in his range.
      But when doing this I wanted to shoe the river, however not sure if this is the correct line.

      I assume this isn't the best card for me, but I some how doubt villain has A5 here, he could sometimes have a slowplayed set, maybe 99?
      Reason for shoving is I did not want to fold if he reraised me here on the river, but I prolly loose value by just shoving?
      I think villain playig like this would call down with alot, but I think I should have made a smaller bet and then shoved?

      When he went into tanking mode I thought I was most likely ahead, unless he had a small set...

      Maybe your preflop size could be slightly larger due to the slightly deeper stacks but it's really not a big deal.

      Rest of the hand is really standard, the board is great for you when it's low. Villain's range here for cold calling your 3b is largely weighted towards 99-KK and you are absolutely crushing his River calling range so this is an easy 3 barrel for value. if he somehow has 99 or A5s or A3s, then that's just bad luck

      nice hand.
