      I called 3B because we are very deep stack both of us.
      Flop and Turn ok I guess.
      Now what bet size for the river? The table was a bit crazy at that time so I decided to make a small value bet withthe hope that he would see it as a bluff and would shove.

      Hi!

      Yeah you are thinking the right way but if you look at it from the right angle you see that it is almost always AAh or QQ there, maybe even JJh. 3b, c/c(redraw or fh outs) and than call small river bet because of the odds prob. It is probably villain dependent of what kind of river bet he will call (wts). I think he would still call 1/2 or 2/3 sized bet.

      Hi,

      I'd bet 19$ on river for value.
      Villain has there an overpair with one heart for sure with which he calls nearly no matter what size you bet.

      What did he have?

      Best regards,
      Anin

      He had QQ, so yes I think he would have called a much bigger bet - even an AI?

      well can´t really put villain on top set and then shove river, since he´d likely call that
      I think his range is more often KK/AA, maybe QQ and possible other flushes and sets
      To get value all of that range I think 22$ valuebet is fine. They don´t fold overpairs, but if you shove aces might find fold
