    Question Would you call this river?

    I'm not sure weather I should have x/c or r/f the river. What are your thoughts?

    I kept telling myself when he raises "he has QJ, he has QJ"!! I feel he would only take this line with a set or QJ.

    Here is the hand, Whats your line?

    iPoker - €0.05 NL FAST (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
    Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

    BB: 39 BB (VPIP: 8.61, PFR: 7.66, 3Bet Preflop: 3.85, Hands: 217)
    UTG: 107.4 BB (VPIP: 14.29, PFR: 9.52, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 2
    2)

    MP: 95.2 BB (VPIP: 14.58, PFR: 8.33, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 51)
    Hero (CO): 177.4 BB
    BTN: 121 BB (VPIP: 31.25, PFR: 12.50, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 16)
    SB: 36.6 BB (VPIP: 14.81, PFR: 3.70, 3Bet Preflop: 9.09, Hands: 29)

    SB posts SB 0.4 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

    Pre Flop: (pot: 1.4 BB) Hero has 10 10:

    fold, fold, Hero raises to 2.6 BB, BTN calls 2.6 BB, SB calls 2.2 BB, fold

    Flop: (8.8 BB, 3 players) 10 9 6:
    SB checks, Hero bets 6 BB, BTN calls 6 BB, fold

    Turn: (20.8 BB, 2 players) K
    Hero bets 10.4 BB, BTN calls 10.4 BB

    River: (41.6 BB, 2 players) 2

    Hero bets 20.8 BB, BTN raises to 72.8 BB, Hero???

    If I have doubts oop ,on the river, a check call usually seems the best play.
    You have too much showdown value to get blown off the way you were.

    Agreed, 16 hands is not enough in order to dismiss the fact this guy has called twice. No reason to bet yourself off the hand there.

    Suits aren't mentioned, but I take it there was no flush possibility, seeing as you're only worried about sets or a straight (well, you're only really worried about a straight, as a better set is fairly unlikely given the betting).

    Look at it from an implied odds perspective for your opponent, if he called with the open ender on the flop, he needs to get another 35bb out of you in order to make any money (probably more as you can have a number of hands you'll fold to any bet). He's called twice, which, against an average opponent, usually means he has something, so check and see if he wants to bet it (*). No need to make his task any easier by chucking 20bb out there. If villain checks behind you're probably good, if he bets anything less than 3/4-pot you have a fairly easy call. I might pay off a little more, as an average opponent is bound to have a bluff, a lesser set or KT-KQ at least some of the time.

    (*): if, over the course of more hands played, villain reveals himself to be a station or a looney toon, you can, off course, barrel relentlessly against him.

    Thanks for reply guys. I felt I was priced in to call and he showed QJ. It got me thinking "maybe I should have check/called". It was a rainbow board so I want worried about a flush. I find people at these stakes call down with they're good hands and finally raise the river!

    Normally the big raise on the river is very nuttier at these levels a lesson I learned the hard way a few times trips plus normally.
