      Preflop: Hero is BU with Q:diamond: , T:diamond:

      River: ($1,41 - 70.50 bb) J:spade: (2 Players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0,70, BB calls

      Preflop: I don't like to isolate with JTs or QTo so for me this is borderline isolation.
      Flop: Standard Cbet.
      Turn: Completes only J9 gutshot but improves me to top 2, so I think bettin again for value and protection is OK.
      River: I don't really see worse card. While I was playing I thought bet/fold is OK, but now I think that check/fold would be better, as I don't see many worse hands that would call. Apparently, there is some, but I think that mostly I'm beat in this spot. What do you think?

      Hi Oly,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: You can't really ck/fold on the river because you are IP. We can simply check back and see a showdown.

      What do we know about villain? He is not the fish that we isolated so if he is a reg we indeed do not have much value in a bet. Maybe a crying call from QK/AQ but that's about it so check back is fine.
      If he is a fish then bet/fold is fine as well.
