      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      BB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BB with T, Q.
      2 folds, CO calls $0.10, 2 folds, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0.25) Q, 8, T (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $0.25, Hero raises to $1.10, CO calls $0.85.

      Turn: ($2.45) A (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.00, CO calls $2.00.

      River: ($6.45) 9 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.00, CO raises to $2.45, Hero calls $1.45.

      Final Pot: $11.35.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows two pairs, queens and tens(Ts Qs).
      CO shows a straight, queen high(Tc Jh).

      CO wins with a straight, queen high(Tc Jh).

      Villain - 44/11/AF0.7 (only 9 hands)

      The reason I didn't raise it up preflop was that my HUD was lagging behind and showed me the wrong stats - VP:9%/PFR: 6%

      So I was happy to see a free flop there in case this ubernit wanted to limp-3bet his AA or whatever ...

      River sucks bad, but he only has 1/3 pot size left, so I didn't see a point in checking since I would've called his shove anyway and I didn't want him checking back an Ax

      It's not that easy for him to show up with Ax unless it beats your two pairs.

      I wouldn't really say check/folding the river is out of the question either. Whether he is 9/6 or 44/11/0.7, he's usually not capable of valueshoving many hands that QT beats on that board.

      I agree with you that it's still fine to bet against stuff like 98/T9 that he could have played like that if you're not going to check/fold anyway. I'd just open-jam the river in that case.

      Hope it helps.
