      Preflop: Hero is BB with A:heart: , Q:heart:
      5 folds, CO raises to $0,40, 2 folds, Hero raises to $1,20, CO calls $0,80.

      Hero bets $1,80, CO calls $1,80.

      Hero checks, CO checks.

      Final Pot: $10,05

      So, I hit TP/TK here. Is there a reaseon why I should've checked this river? Now that I look at it, I think might have shoved it... I only had half a pot left anyway.

      What do you say?

      On that board you´re playing for stacks.
      Bet/call 3$-4$ on the turn that you could shove river.
      As played: shove river. You´re not c/f and there would be worse hands that would call your shove.
