      saw flop | saw showdown

      MP ($14.15)
      CO ($5.40)
      Button ($12.30) 28/9/1.4/30 92 hands
      SB ($6.90)
      BB ($2.15)
      Hero (UTG) ($10)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with K:heart: , Q:heart:
      Hero raises to $0.40, 2 folds, Button calls $0.40, 2 folds

      Flop: ($0.95) A:diamond: , Q:club: , 9:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.60, Button calls $0.60

      A high Flop --> cbet.

      Turn: ($2.15) 3:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.35, Button calls $1.35

      I think this was wrong. He will probably not fold any A here. So my goal should be to get as cheap as possible to showdown... Probably c/f would be right because i have not really a read that he will call weak hands on a A high flop.

      River: ($4.85) 5:club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, Button bets $1, Hero folds

      He bets very small, but i don't see him betting anything her that i beat.

      Total pot: $4.85 | Rake: $0.20

      What do you think of the hand and my thoughts?

      Do you call the river?

      I think you're thoughts are correct all the way
      as played : I'd still fold that river, you're almost getting 6:1 on your money but I just can't put him on any hand that you can beat :/

      This is tough but he could still have a pocket lower than 9s, maybe a Q or a busted flush draw. I think he would have raised if he had an Ace to see if his kicker is good, since UTG raises are usually pockets or strong aces.
      You could be beat, but i would still call 1$ on river, at least to look at his cards and see what he is calling with.

      I would check turn for pot control and probably fold to a large bet

      I call river because he might have something worse than you, even tho he prob has you beat.

      that 3 is not a good card to second barrel . he will not fold better. you will get value just from a straight draw . against this player that looks lose passive i would check fold turn because i dont see him beting worst then an A here .
