      PokerStars - 40/80 Ante 10 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 2 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BB: 55.45 BB (VPIP: 44.23, PFR: 1.96, 3Bet Preflop: 5.26, Hands: 58)
      Hero (SB): 57.05 BB

      2 players post ante of 0.13 BB, Hero posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.75 BB) Hero has A:diamond: J:heart:

      Hero raises to 2 BB, BB calls 1 BB

      Flop: (4.25 BB, 2 players) 3:diamond: Q:diamond: J:club:
      BB checks, Hero bets 2.13 BB, BB calls 2.13 BB

      Turn: (8.5 BB, 2 players) Q:club:
      BB checks, Hero bets 4.25 BB, BB calls 4.25 BB

      River: (17 BB, 2 players) 4:diamond:
      BB checks, Hero checks

      The flop seems standart. Turn i think i have to bet again (especially HU) the Q makes less probable that he has in his hand so my second pair seems good since it didn't complete any flush. On river after his check i would probably have a value bet, i don't know what hands could he call here but a weaker J may be. What do you think about the sizing?

      Cumps ;)

      I think you played the hand well until the river. There you could consider making a value bet for like half pot. Especially against a fish it could be very profitable to make thin value bets. You could be surprised what kind of hands they will call with.

      I would have played the hand this way, too. Including the check on the river. @SDK: What would you do when villain check-raises the river?

      I doubt he will ever check raise. I expect he would lead if he has a strong value hand, but sometimes he could check raise trips or better. Off course I expect he would bet top pair already on the flop.
