      villain was 35/17/4.0. Is there a value bet here on the river when I get the king? Do you see anything calling that I beat?

      PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em, $0.25 BB (5 handed) - Poker-Stars Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      SB ($46.05)
      BB ($20)
      UTG ($19.25)
      Hero (MP) ($25.35)
      Button ($24.90)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with J, K
      1 fold, Hero raises to $1, 2 folds, BB calls $0.75

      Flop: ($2.10) 9, J, 6 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $1.50, BB raises to $4, Hero calls $2.50

      Turn: ($10.10) Q (2 players)
      BB bets $3, Hero calls $3

      I don't see raising here as a good play. I don't think I have anything to protect, and I don't think the Q changed anything when he bets so small. If a flush card comes on the rivr it will be obvious and I can fold, with safe cards I think I can call a small bet.

      River: ($16.10) K (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      Total pot: $16.10 | Rake: $0.75

      Results in white below:
      BB had A, J (one pair, Jacks).
      Hero had J, K (two pair, Kings and Jacks).
      Outcome: Hero won $15.35

      I find a blockbet on the river. Something like 7$.

      definitely value bet this river, if he had a big hand like a set he would have tried to protect it more from the draws.

      With straigth he´d shove.
      Set is likely that he´d c/c and you beat most of the other two pair and weaker hands.
      He has less than potsize left and has bought in 80bb, so I think that shoving here is fine, since he´d call with worse hands and you´re often ahead.
