      Known players:

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.69 by

      Preflop: Hero is BB with Q:diamond: , Q:club:
      MP3 raises to $0.08, 3 folds, Hero raises to $0.24, MP3 calls $0.16.

      Flop: ($0.49) A:diamond: , J:heart: , 6:spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.26, MP3 calls $0.26.

      Turn: ($1.01) K:spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 checks.

      River: ($1.01) A:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.50, MP3 calls $0.50.

      Final Pot: $2.01

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows two pairs, aces and queens (Qd Qc)
      MP3 shows three of a kind, aces (Tc As)

      MP3 wins with three of a kind, aces (Tc As)

      Calling my 3bet I put him on something like TT+, maybe AJs+.

      Think a conti-bet on the flop will be pretty affective most of the time, when he then checks the turn I thought he maybe had hit the J and just didn't want to lay it down on the flop.

      Thinking about it now though I see that most hands I put him on have atleast hit that flop and now have me beat on the turn for sure, should I just check fold the river?

      Or was my block bet the correct move? Anyhting I should have done differently?

      I like more c/f on the river. If you want to make a block bet there bet sth like $0.3 and fold to a raise.

      don't bet river you are just turning your hand into a bluff when you have some equity.

      Let's think about his flop calling range. I think someting like this makes sense:

      Ax, Jx, KQ, KT.

      Once the K hits the turn, you have no value whatsoever in betting again, becasue the only hands you beat are Jx and they're all folding when 2 overcards are showing on the turn.

      You can safely c/f that river. He's checking back all of his Jx and when he does that you take down the pot. If he bets, you can be sure you're behind =)

      The flop cbet is fine ;-)
