      PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em, $0.10 BB (5 handed) - Poker-Stars Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      saw flop | saw showdown

      BB ($8.00)
      UTG ($7.95)
      Hero (MP) ($10.10)
      Button ($22.35)
      SB ($15.55)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with A:spade: J:diamond:
      UTG calls $0.10, Hero raises to $0.50, 2 folds, BB calls $0.40, 1 fold

      Flop: ($1.15) 3:heart: K:diamond: 5:spade: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      Very good board for a cbet. But villain was 56/2/1.0/60, 62 hands, so i thought he wouldn't fold anything.

      Cbet anyway?

      Turn: ($1.15) 6:spade: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($1.15) 8:club: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      Should i bet the river for value against such an opponent?

      Total pot: $1.15 | Rake: $0.05

      I'd cbet this board even against a calling station, cause the king is in your range and there almost is no better board. If he calls i'd probably just keep checking behind, since he might hold 22 or so which he wouldn't fold then, if h had not fold to your c bet.

      I´d c-bet here, since you´re ip and position is the most important thing at nl holdem.
      Three things could happen: he could fold (which he´d do quite often, since it is very dry flop and he is playing 56% of his hands,s o he misses he a lot), he could call and he could raise (since his af is 1,0, then doubt that he´d raise with Kx- mostly he´ll hold two pair or better and then you can fold your A high).
      So you´re facing only another decision if he calls. Since he is saying that he doesn´t have much, I´d fire second barrel (3/4 pot). It is very hard him to call if he doesn´t have K and if he calls again then it is important which is his went to showdown. If river is blank and he isn´t complete calling station firing 3-rd bullet could be very useful and he might even fold here Kx.
