      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.62 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with J:diamond: , J:heart:
      4 folds, MP3 calls $0,25, 2 folds, Hero raises to $1,25, BB folds, MP3 calls $1,00.

      Flop: ($2,75) 3:club: , 5:diamond: , K:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1,75, MP3 calls $1,75.

      Turn: ($6,25) 4:spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 checks.

      River: ($6,25) Q:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $2,00 (All-In), MP3 calls $2,00.

      Final Pot: $10,25

      As the Subject says, I pushed for value, because I considered myself ahead after the villain checked behind on the turn. Or should I have gone c/f all the way?

      P.S.: Push turn perhaps?

      Hello burek,

      As you are OOP postflop on SB/BB, I tend to add an extra BB to let them ''pay'' the position.

      As played, I would just go for a cheap showdown and make notes of his betting line, a check behind on the turn on this dry board isn't saying much.

      With 2 OCs with one being a King, I just save my 8bb, perhaps I call a minbet on the river to see what the hell he was doing :)
