      Hero (BB): $105.04
      UTG: $51.32
      CO: $61.52
      BTN: $51.05
      SB: $51.32

      Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero is BB with Q :club: Q :spade:
      UTG raises to $1.50, 3 folds, Hero raises to $5, UTG calls $3.50

      Flop: ($10.25) K :diamond: 4 :heart: 4 :spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG checks

      Turn: ($10.25) 8 :heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $6, UTG calls $6

      River: ($22.25) 8 :club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG checks

      Villain is a solid reg, 21/18/9 with 1.4AF over 169 hands. His fold to 3bet is 83% (5/6), he called once.

      I rule out KK+, I can see him however holding AKo or even AKs here sometimes. Other hands would be JJ, maybe TT or AQ.
      He would fold everything except AK to my cbet on the flop so I decide not to bet.
      Turn is a value bet for me after he checks it to me - I might get a call from JJ or TT. Should I also bet the river?

      nh. I'd play it the same way against this villain.
      Villains line looks a lot like 99-JJ so a bet on river is fine, if you can fine a fold if he raises.

      Let's see what the judges think.

      Best regards,

      Hi all,

      I'd definitely bet the river to get some more value, maybe not even too small so it can look like a bluff, too.
      As you write about his stats I'd assume that he folds hands like KJ or KQ to your 3bet. Like Anin I think he has got more often lower pockets than yours here which he always checks behind.

      I think he might call river with TT/JJ, so I like betting river instead of check/calling
