      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      BB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BB with J, A.
      UTG1 folds, UTG2 calls $0.25, 5 folds, SB calls $0.15, Hero raises to $1.50, UTG2 folds, SB calls $1.25.

      SB checks, Hero bets $2.50, SB raises to $8.25, Hero calls $5.75.

      Turn: ($19.75) Q (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks.

      River: ($19.75) 8 (2 players)
      SB bets $11.00, Hero folds, SB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $19.75.


      This hand in retrospective is very interesting to me. Villain is 17/9/1 with 39% wts in 154hands.

      As played I think I did it really badly, cuz with position and a bit more agression I think i could have picked up the pot on flop.

      So as I cbet the river a non agressive opponent check raises me. Gotta admit that it quite threw me off the hand and clear thinking and in these spots it would be better if I folded right away. Me calling there is probably just giving him better odds for later streets if he is drawing.

      So I am wondering is it profitable to shove on flop considering he could have JT, QT, maybe QJ, KJ, 89, 78, 8T. And another question if he is holding a fd would a player like him be able to c/r it, or is he doing that with monster draws and why would he get tricky at all?

      Thnx for ur help

      17/9 would not c/r that board with JT, QT, maybe QJ, KJ, 89, 78
      It is most of the times straight, set or two pair, some rare occasions A high flushdraw or some combo draws
      Against that range you´re crushed and I would b/f flop
      If you think he might c/r flop with draws then call his river bet
