      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.25/$0.5 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3(Hero):

      CO:
      $50.00
      BU:
      $53.95
      SB:
      $74.85
      BB:
      $82.65


      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with Q, Q.
      Hero raises to $2.00, CO folds, BU calls $2.00, 2 folds.

      Flop: ($4.75) 2, 9, 2 (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.50, BU calls $3.50.

      Turn: ($11.75) 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $7.00, BU calls $7.00.

      River: ($25.75) A (2 players)
      Hero bets $12.00, BU folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $25.75.

      Villain is a 32/27/3.0/37wts over 136 hands.

      What do you think about checking the river to him to let him turn his missed draws and stuff into a bluff? Or does he check behind too often with stuff like 9x or TT-JJ that has showdown value to make this less profitable?

      I like c/c river because he won't be calling third barrel with K9/Q9, maybe with TT/JJ but I think he is getting more aggressive with that on earlier streets. By checking we get value from bluffs, and also avoid being put in a nasty spot if he decides to shove river.

      Exactly. I don't think I get more value from anything, and him shoving over me would be boring.

      I´d also c/c river.
      You can b7f, but then you should have some kind of history against player who would think you never have there hand and would call you down for example 9x
