      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, Hero posts BB 1 BB

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

      UTG raises to 3 BB, MP raises to 8 BB, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to 16 BB, fold, MP calls 8 BB

      Flop: (35.5 BB, 2 players) J:spade: K:spade: J:diamond:
      Hero checks, MP checks

      Turn: (35.5 BB, 2 players) 2:spade:
      Hero checks, MP checks

      River: (35.5 BB, 2 players) 6:spade:
      Hero bets 7 BB, MP raises to 43.9 BB and is all-in, Hero calls 36.9 BB

      MP shows K:heart: J:club: (Full House, Jacks full of Kings) (Pre 29%, Flop 92%, Turn 95%)
      Hero shows Q:heart: Q:spade: (Flush, King High) (Pre 71%, Flop 8%, Turn 5%)
      MP wins 118.3 BB

      Is river bet ok? I bet for thin value, I dont think he has some hand that could call bigger hand since he is very passive but it is really the question what is he 3betting vs utg and calling 4bet, that he plays passive? I would say QQ (but I have it).

      AQ, some AK, KK, AA? i know you're expecting him to bet/stack pre but you never know with these fishy-looking guys.

      i guess the small bet is about ok but i'm folding to the raise given the info, can't find too many hands for him to turn into a bluff.

      I think you can bet slightly larger, maybe to 10bb but I would call the raise as played. I'm never betting so small with the intention of folding unless the value is extremely thin (I don't think it is here) and unless we know for sure that villain is really passive.
