      Known players:

      0,05/0,1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.67 by

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with J:spade: , 8:spade:
      Hero calls $0,10, 2 folds, BU raises to $0,20, 2 folds, Hero calls $0,10.

      Flop: ($0,55) J:heart: , J:club: , J:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $0,10, Hero calls $0,10.

      I flop the quads so I think the only way to gain some value if the opponent doesnt have a made hand is to check call and hope he attempts a big bluff.

      Turn: ($0,75) 5:spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $0,10, Hero calls $0,10.

      River: ($0,95) 5:club: (2 players)


      What size of a bet should I do against such an opponent on a board like this?
      I think any bet up to the size of the pot will easilly get called by any type of hands.

      Is is possible to gain more value with an overbet that would look like a bluff?

      I decided to go all in.. hopping.. well praying he had an overpair of 5s..

      Hero bets $13,65 (All-In)
      , BU raises to $10,86 (All-In).

      Final Pot: $25,46

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows four of a kind, jacks (Js 8s)
      BU shows a full-house, jacks full of fives (Kh Qs)

      Hero wins with four of a kind, jacks (Js 8s)

      In cases like this I usually just overshove the river! You'll be surprised how often people call at the micro limits! Of course they fold a lot too, but each time you get a call, you're winning big time! They might call with some pocket pair higher than 5's.
      This hand is a perfect example ... poor guy didn't even beat the board :D .

      I read somewhere that you should always shove quads on the river, no matter what pot size or previous action. They will rarely fold a FH
