      Hi all,
      just played this hand... as mentioned in the title, I was playing BSS

      0.02/0.04 No-Limit Hold'em (10 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Texas Grabem 1.8 by www.pokerstrategy.cc.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A:heart: , K:spade:
      UTG folds, UTG+1 calls $0.04, 6 folds, Hero raises to $0.16, BB folds, UTG+1 calls $0.12.

      Flop: ($0.36) 4:club: , Q:diamond: , T:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.16, UTG+1 calls $0.16.
      Usual continuation bet...

      Turn: ($0.68) J:spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.20, UTG+1 raises to $0.40, Hero raises to $1.40, UTG+1 calls $1.00.
      But then he raises the turn, so at this point i put him on something like QJ or QT for 2 pair, or maybe even 44 for the flopped set, so I guess it's pretty safe to raise for value...

      River: ($3.48) 5:spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.52, UTG+1 calls $1.52.
      But here, since I read strength, should I have bet more? I'm pretty sure anyone would call at least 2/3 pot with 2pair or a set, with such a "harmless" board (or not ;) )...so basically my main concern is the river bet size... is 1/2 pot enough?

      Final Pot: $6.52

      Thanks for any comments, critiscism etc ^^

      Since you had the nuts, your goal was to go allin. And since you've put your opponent on 2 pair/set you could as well push allin on the river, but on those limits I think that even if you were going to bet 2/3 pot or even pot you would get called with worse hands than 2 pair or a set.

      Hi swissmoumout!

      First of all I would contibet more (at least 0.2). Also on the turn you should bet more for value (at least 2/3 potsize). On these limits you get paid off anyway. And on the river I would definitely push allin.

      Good luck at the tables!
