      Why don't you bet on the Turn? You still've got TP TK i would bet something around 2.20$. On the River I would just call his raise, because he made a check/raise. He may have a set.

      Having checked the turn and bet less than 1/3 pot on the river, you've showed a lot of weakness, you absolutely have to at least call the river and you should expect to be ahead most of the time. I understand that you've probably read that you should check the turn for pot control with one pair, but against a random NL10 opponent betting the turn in position is perfectly safe and recommendable. As you played it, bet more on the river.

      Hi Xzorius!

      Bet $2 on the turn and check/call on the river should be the best line here because you have tp protect your hand on the turn and there are not many worse hands which would call a riverbet.

      Good luck at the tables!

      Dont you mean bet/call the river Puschkin or perhaps check behind? He cant check/call the river since he's in position though! ;) tihi ^^
