      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

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

      Known players:

      Preflop: Hero is CO with Q, Q.
      MP3 raises to $1.50, Hero raises to $5.00, 3 folds, MP3 calls $3.50.

      Flop: ($10.75) J, A, 2 (2 players)
      MP3 checks, Hero bets $5.00, MP3 calls $5.00.

      Turn: ($20.75) 5 (2 players)
      MP3 checks, Hero checks.

      River: ($20.75) A (2 players)
      MP3 checks, Hero checks.

      Final Pot: $20.75.

      Villain is a 19/17/0.3 over 71 hands. This was the first time that he got 3-bet.

      Do I check back the turn and call a river bet(small or big)? Or can I bet the turn and check behind the river? Do I get any value on the turn by betting?

      I think I would play it the same way - after your c-bet is called switch to pot control as he could be holding A with a weak kicker. Check behind turn, call a river bet to catch bluffs from missed gutshots/flushdraws/second pair hands.

      check turn is standard, I doubt he´d call two barrels too many times with worse hands
      Since A pairs, then it is unlikely that he also holds A, so you sometimes can call small river bet, but usually people are not betting there Jx, so you only hope he has missed draw
