      $0.25/$0.5 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with T, T.
      Hero raises to $2.00, 2 folds, BU calls $2.00, 2 folds.

      Flop: ($4.75) 4, 4, 8 (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.00, BU calls $3.00.

      Turn: ($10.75) 3 (2 players)
      Hero bets $6.00, BU calls $6.00.

      River: ($22.75) 9 (2 players)
      Hero bets $11.00, BU raises to $22.00,

      Villain is a 50%-vpip.

      Is my betsizing on the flop and turn good? And is bet/folding 1/2 pot on the river ok here? I don't think I beat anything he reraises with on the river. What could he have? A slowplayed 4? Some flush?

      We need more info besides 50% VPIP to determine our river decision but I think I will call that one, he can do that with Toppair as well though i would bet $7.5 on the Turn for value

      I would not fold river against a 50 VPIP guy, unless he is very passive like AF<1. Also against a fish I also always bet close to pot if I believe I'm ahead. They don't pay attention to your bet sizes anyway.

      generally b/f river is ok, just 50% vpip could also min-raise river 89 for value which you beat, so imo you should call min-raise
