      Hero (SB): 112.76 BB

      Hero posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

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

      fold, fold, CO raises to 3 BB, fold, Hero calls 2.5 BB, fold

      Flop: (7 BB, 2 players) 3:heart: J:heart: 7:diamond:
      Hero checks, CO checks

      Turn: (7 BB, 2 players) 3:spade:
      Hero bets 4.9 BB, CO calls 4.9 BB

      River: (16.8 BB, 2 players) T:spade:
      Hero bets 11.76 BB, fold

      Hero shows Q:spade: K:club: (One Pair, Threes)
      Hero wins 15.96 BB

      Is it ok to bet river? He probably calls turn with middle PP, and I think T is a good card because his PP becomes buttom pair. I guess on small cards on river it is better not to bet, because villian probably pot controls and plans to call.

      Hey G,

      I agree with the river bet. Usually betting just the turn only won't be that profitable, maybe slightly and you should always bet twice here imo, or almost always, esp when river is not a small card, but a card that can scare midpairs like he usually has and tried to pot control.
