      Preflop: Hero is UTG2 with Q, Q.
      UTG1 folds, Hero raises to $0.20, 3 folds, CO calls $0.20, 3 folds.

      Flop: ($0.47) J, 5, 7 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.30, CO calls $0.30.

      Turn: ($1.07) 4 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.80, CO calls $0.80.

      River: ($2.67) 6 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $4.98, Hero folds, CO gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $2.67.

      On the river I thought to myself "this looks so much like a bluff, that this cant be a bluff". Then I realized, that only thing I beat is a bluff (5 possible sets, lots of possible straights and 2 pairs with connectors). So I folded and villain showed AQ. FFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUU. I got him marked now and I still think it was correct fold.

      Hi,


      I'd suggest just bet/folding the river to like $1.5, makes it pretty much impossible for all but the most psychotic players to bluff you while at the same time getting value from the various Jx hands he could have been calling down with.

      As played you don't get good enough odds on a bluff-catch without a read on the guy, considering how easy it would be for him to actually show up with random two pairs in that spot.


      Hope it helps.
