      Villain is a reg, 19/14/3 over 260 hands with 40 f3b. CB alot and steals a lot so I knew he wasn't raising with any2 UTG.

      Hero (BTN) ($5.40) 108bb
      SB ($8.77) 175bb
      BB ($12.84) 257bb

      Pre-Flop: ($0.07, 5 players) Hero is BTN A:spade: A:diamond:
      UTG raises to $0.15, 1 fold, Hero raises to $0.45, 2 folds, UTG calls $0.30

      Hero wins $7.96 (net +$2.56)

      UTG lost $2.72

      I want to know about the sizings and if it was a good idea to bet on the river.

      Hey Gnama,

      Generally on a texture like 886 rainbow, a small sizing works best. Villain is less likely to connect with this board and a smaller sizing encourages him to continue with a wider range. Something like $0.55 would be fine.

      Turn sizing looks ok, villain likely has an overpair after he floats flop OOP.

      River shove looks good. K is a bad card for extracting value since villain's most likely holding by now is TT/JJ. If you'd bet smaller on earlier streets you'd probably bet small here rather than shove. Seeing as you only have 1/2 pot left your shove is fine.
