      River: ($2.55) J (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $1.90, Hero folds, BU gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $2.55.



      Any mistakes postflop? turn and river showed ugly cards.
      On turn I wasn't sure whether he had actually completed his draw or if he was just playing pockets or just calling with crap, so I didn't bet. Now that I think of it, he could have been playing an overpair, but with all the calling station at rush, you never know.
      Should I have bet in the turn?
      And well, folding in the river is right I guess, not many hands he would bet with would lose against my aces.

      Turn: I think checking is fine. There isn't a lot of value in betting since Q :club: is a scare card for the stuff your ahead of, + villian isn't going to have many strong 1 pair hands that you can valuetown on this board.

      River: I give unknowns credit.

      Sounds good. Truthfully I don't mind betting the turn either against unknowns and letting them figure out what they wanna call again with, since you have no idea whether he will bluff you off (knowingly or not) by randomly betting later streets. I don't think the bet can be considered bad against unknowns, they always call lighter than we think.


      Hope it helps.
