      Don't ask why I didn't c-bet and what I was doing here, just had feeling he had marginal hand. What should be the play on the river with no showdown value? Was I right to give it up?

      Known players:

      0.02/0.04 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.70 by

      Preflop: Hero is BU with 5:heart: , A:heart:
      3 folds, MP3 calls $0.04, CO folds, Hero raises to $0.16, 2 folds, MP3 calls $0.12.

      Flop: ($0.38) 7:diamond: , 2:club: , Q:spade: (2 players)
      MP3 checks, Hero checks.

      Turn: ($0.38) T:diamond: (2 players)
      MP3 checks, Hero bets $0.27, MP3 raises to $0.54, Hero raises to $0.99, MP3 calls $0.45.

      River: ($2.36) 8:club: (2 players)
      MP3 checks, Hero checks.

      Final Pot: $2.36

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows high card ace with queen kicker (5h Ah)
      MP3 shows three of a kind, tens (Tc Th)

      MP3 wins with three of a kind, tens (Tc Th)

      Well it's pretty much tied to your turn play so only you know. If you end up 3bet bluffing a calling station to begin with, you should be fairly sure you can take him off something and know in how many bets. If you end up in a spot where you have no idea what you're doing, check/folding to avoid compounding mistakes is usually the safe way.

      Hope it helps.

      C-bet flop, c/f turn.
      And if you're going to 3-bet the turn, you're obviously trying to bluff him off the hand, so why check the river!?

      This play is absoloute donk IMO.
