      River: (89 BB, 2 players) Q:club:
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      BTN shows J:spade: 2:spade: (One Pair, Jacks) (Pre 34%, Flop 75%, Turn 68%)
      Hero shows Q:spade: A:heart: (One Pair, Queens) (Pre 66%, Flop 25%, Turn 32%)
      Hero wins 84.56 BB

      He calls flop cbet 78%, turn folds 1/1. Should I play in that case ch/f when he is calling light? My plan was to bet turn because I saw that he folds 1/1, but it is very weak info.

      Is river check fold ok? I think that he should be happy with free showdown with most hands, and it seems that he has showdown value when he calls turn.

      The only big mistake would be to cbet once imo. If you cbet to barrel it will be OK, if you choose your barrel cards carefully enough. I would usually give up against him but if you feel you can make him fold on enough turns and rivers, betting is OK.

      River play is good. I agree, he will take the showdown with most hands and you are behind when he bets.
