      Tried to make thin valuebet on the river but should have probably checked, or shouldn't I? I wonder if he had any history on me that I could fold AQ, AK in this situation, he could also be bluffing, but my 2$ bet probably gives up my hand to thinking opponents and it's easy to bluff me there, what should I do ?

      I would check on the river and if villain bets i would decide(depends on the size of the bet) if i would call or fold.

      this river is a spot where I'd probably bet fairly low as well but less than half the pot is showing too much weakness... 3.5ish should be good to extract value I think - its an exploitable move, you should be aware of that, but most other players at these stakes dont even know what exploitable moves are, let alone spot them. YOU should be very aware though, cause you dont want to make these kind of moves on the higher stakes against regs

      Raise to 0.70 preflop ( 4BB + 1 per limper+1 for OOP).
      Postflop is played nicely. He might call you with worse on the river, so I definitely bet there as well. If he shows there he has it, I doubt he is bluffing there. nh postflop.


      Best regards,
