Villain is 13/12/0 over 33 hands, no read. No idea what he called my 3bet with but I am worried about AJ and QQ mainly. When he checks river I think I have a clear value bet, how much should I make it? 1/2p? And ofc Im folding to a check raise. Maybe betting turn and checking river is better so he doesnt c/f missed draws on river.

Not to sure myself which two streets you should bet here for value, but once villains checks on the river its worth another value bet, half pot is fine imo.

I agree with almightybald here. I think we can go for two streets of value. Since the board is fairly safe with the low cards, I would lean toward checking the turn and betting about half pot on the river. If the board is more draw heavy, then I would often bet the turn and check the river.
