      villian, 28/11, Agf 1.5

      No-Limit Hold'em, $0.50 BB (6 handed) - Hold'em Manager Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      SB ($74.25)
      BB ($28.65)
      Hero (UTG) ($77.55)
      MP ($72.30)
      CO ($25.45)
      Button ($49)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with A:diamond: , A:heart:
      Hero bets $2, 1 fold, CO calls $2, Button calls $2, 2 folds

      Flop: ($6.75) 5:heart: , 10:spade: , 3:diamond: (3 players)
      Hero bets $4, 1 fold, Button raises $10.50, Hero calls $6.50

      Turn: ($27.75) 7:heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, Button checks

      River: ($27.75) K:spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, Button checks

      Total pot: $27.75

      i think the call on the flop was good, the turn check too, but when he checked on the river i think i should have made a valuebet around half size the pot, but was too afraid of a raise to do so

      I agree , no need to go over the top on the flop because the board is pretty safe but after he checked behind on the turn I would make a ~1/2 pot valuebet on the river hoping to get called by a Tx type of hand

      The only hand that beats you here is KT. So a valuebet is good.

      Villain likely has there meidum pp or pure bluff, so he likely doesn´t call your river bet anyway, which doesn´t say you shouldn´t bet river for value :)
      I´d 3-bet likely on the flop, since a lot of times nowadays people would flat pf big pocket pairs and would raise there for value. Since noone can´t have set (or it is very hard to hit one :P ), then people tend to be very suspicious sometimes when you re-raise on dry baord thinking that you´re trying ot outplay you and call down/ship there always with overpairs and sometimes Tx and weaker hands
