      Value bet

      Thin value bet. I guess I could check/call this hand to get value from his floats.

      This is the strongest hand I check the river with so I guess I should call here. However, I don't think he ever bluffs in this spot as there ain't so many draws that he could've called with. He looks like a set/2pair most of the time. QJ wouldn't bet either.

      I guess KQ got there, and you have 2 yourself so it's much less likely that he has a busted backdoor FD or something along those lines.

      I agree that you are not beating much here so c/f is reasonable. He probably checks back a hand like QJ on the River.
