      I suggest you bet 2$ pre-flop next time and not 1.5.

      And you may extract some value if villiand has A and wants to win pot with high card but...

      You made nice turn bet and was called.

      Maybe villian missed his draws on river or even is slowplaying and i found it difficult to extract value here with your river bet.

      In my opinion there you have nice river check behind.

      Hey there,

      I'm not sure whether my idea is too weak, but I'd personally prefer checking behind just because I think there are very few hands that might pay you off here (I'd say 99, 8x and still that's a maaaaybe, no decent opponent will call a 3rd barrel with such a weak hand I think). And since the value is so thin vs unknown opponent I wouldn't want to risk seeing a ch/R here, cause when you bet so small you might give away the strength of your hand.

      If he was a showdown bound passive fish, then we could surely even put in a 1/2 pot bet I guess.

      Qx is not so likely, but it is really hard to call you down with worse hands, so i think I´d take my free showdown
      Also he can sometimes turn his missed flushdraw into bluff, so you can b/f river with better hand
