      Hi guys.
      I was playing for about 15 hands at that table, and the villain seemed to be tight passive, but didn't manage to see any showdown involving him before. This was happening in the middle stages of a MTT, with aproximatively 30 persons to bust until we got into the money.

      PokerStars - $1+$0.10|300/600 Ante 70 NL - Holdem - 9 players

      SB: 24.62 BB (VPIP: 11.11, PFR: 11.11, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 18)
      BB: 9.29 BB (VPIP: 16.67, PFR: 5.56, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 18)
      UTG: 2.01 BB (VPIP: 0.00, PFR: 0.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 19)
      Hero (UTG+1): 31.72 BB
      MP: 0.89 BB (VPIP: 0.00, PFR: 0.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 19)
      MP+1: 29 BB (VPIP: 35.29, PFR: 11.76, 3Bet Preflop: 25.00, Hands: 19)
      MP+2: 35.39 BB (VPIP: 5.26, PFR: 5.26, 3Bet Preflop: 25.00, Hands: 19)
      CO: 42.08 BB (VPIP: 61.11, PFR: 22.22, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 19)
      BTN: 26.63 BB (VPIP: 15.79, PFR: 0.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 19)

      9 players post ante of 0.12 BB, SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 2.55 BB) Hero has J:club: K:club:

      fold, Hero raises to 2 BB, fold, fold, fold, fold, BTN calls 2 BB, fold, BB calls 1 BB

      Flop: (7.55 BB, 3 players) T:club: 9:heart: 6:spade:
      BB checks, Hero checks, BTN checks

      Turn: (7.55 BB, 3 players) K:spade:
      BB checks, Hero bets 4 BB, BTN calls 4 BB, BB calls 4 BB

      River: (19.55 BB, 3 players) J:diamond:
      BB checks, Hero checks, BTN bets 9 BB, fold, fold

      BTN wins 19.55 BB

      What was the correct move on the turn?
      L.E. What about the river? My fingers were itching towards a call, but folded after my time bank ran out.

      River is a fold and its not close. Villain will check back every hand that you beat on the river.

      Turn bet is fine but you can also cbet flop, even though its multiway there are so many good turn cards for you that you can barrel again on.

      I agree with all of this advice, no way villain as air when he bets on river.
