      I was really happy with that flop - my top pair is often good and even if it isn't I have quite some outs. I value bet flop and turn.

      Now what about the river? I put villain on some small pocket pairs, but 5x and 6x are definitely a large part of what villain would call that flop with. I kind of felt that he might be trying to trap me with rivered trips or something so I check behind.
      Can I find a 3rd value bet on that river? Or do I turn my hand entirely into a bluff with a river bet, allowing even weaker hands to make me fold a winner with a c/r?

      Flop and turn are good. Value betting river is 2 thin against most people imo.

      This, tho I would bet bigger on the turn, there are still plenty of drawing hands like flushdraws and pair+gutshot/OESD stuff that can call an even bigger bet.

      Also if SB is fit-or-fold type postflop I don't mind even raising 82s preflop, since most of the time you don't need cards.

      Hope it helps.
