      $0.1/$0.25 No Limit Holdem
      6 players

      UTG ($25.00)
      UTG+1 ($31.32)------14/9/2,7 (210)
      CO ($30.40)------49/20/4 (70)
      Hero (BTN) ($27.60)
      SB ($9.96)
      BB ($23.12)

      Pre-flop: ($0.35, 6 players) Hero is BTN A:club: J:club:
      1 fold, UTG+1 raises to $1, CO calls $1, Hero calls $1, 2 folds

      Flop: J:heart: 3:club: 4:spade: ($3.35, 3 players)
      UTG+1 bets $2, CO folds, Hero calls $2

      Turn: 2:diamond: ($7.35, 2 players)
      UTG+1 bets $4, Hero calls $4

      River: 7:club: ($15.35, 2 players)
      UTG+1 checks, Hero bets $10, UTG+1 calls $10

      Preflop i call because of the big fish on the CO and i got position on both of them.
      Easy call on the flop and the turn i guess.
      On the river, when he checks im sure hes not c/raising, so eiter hes c/c or c/folding. Will he c/c AA-QQ here? Im i turning my hand into a bluff?

      What are we getting value out of with our river bet? Is KJ in his range, no way is he calling lower pockets than a J now right? I think I may just check back river for SD value happy to have got the 2nd barrel out of him which I like to think he fires a lot on this board.

      He's nitty enough to take a c/c there with better hands indeed, i'm almost surprised that he didn't c/c the turn already. He can likely still do that with a worse J so betting is still fine, but i'd make it smaller since i don't think you'll ever get raised by that guy on the river and he might fold worse J to such a huge bet.

      Hope it helps.
