Villain CO: No hands, but under stacked
Villain SB: 3 hands, 67/0/0, WWSF:0/2

What my river line should be?

B/F : He might call 9x hands, maybe some Kx hands

X/C: In some cases he will bluff club draw, and for value some Kx hands.

X/F: If he bets, there are not that many Kx hands I win, if any.

Button ($6.53)
SB ($6.42)
Hero (BB) ($5.52)
UTG ($6.38)
MP ($3.68)
CO ($3.77)

Preflop: Hero is BB with K, 10
2 folds, CO calls $0.05, 1 fold, SB calls $0.03, Hero checks

Flop: ($0.15) 9, 7, 2 (3 players)
SB checks, Hero checks, CO checks

Turn: ($0.15) K (3 players)
SB checks, Hero bets $0.08, CO calls $0.08, 1 fold

River: ($0.31) 4 (2 players)

I think you should definitely bet on the river - you're going to get all sorts of junk to call, particularly if the opponent is a calling station (the few stats you have on him don't tell us anything other than that he might be passive).

If he raises our river bet very small, say a minbet, then I'd call. If he makes a proper 2Bet, then I'd fold.

I think checking is missing value from many of his worse Kx and 9x hands that might well call our 50% pot bet.

Hi brave,

I prefer to raise pre vs. their 2 limps, our hand has some good value vs. their wide open range of garbage and we can get more money in + take initiative.

Bet the flop, we have a lot of equity with 2 overs + a flush draw and it's a limped pot, I'd like to start growing it now with this many outs to make top pair or better. If no one has anything, they may fold now as well, which is fine. Definitely like taking the lead in the hand with a semi-bluff here.

Turn bet is good.

River is a bet/fold imo. There should be enough worse hands that will call us down, and if we get raised then I would expect 1 pair to not be good almost ever.
