Default 25nl ugly river

PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em, $0.25 BB (7 handed) - Poker-Stars Converter Tool from

SB ($15.20)
BB ($25.50)
UTG ($20.10)
MP1 ($28)
Hero (MP2) ($30.05)
CO ($29.75)
Button ($21.95)

Preflop: Hero is MP2 with Q, K
2 folds, Hero bets $1, 1 fold, Button calls $1, SB calls $0.90, 1 fold

Flop: ($3.25) K, 6, 8 (3 players)
SB checks, Hero bets $2.25, Button calls $2.25, 1 fold

Turn: ($7.75) 10 (2 players)
Hero bets $4.25, Button calls $4.25

River: ($16.25) J (2 players)
Hero checks, Button bets $14.45 (All-In), Hero??

Villian was 30/17/2.9 over a smallish sample. The problem here for me is that when I check the river I open the door to be bluffed but I dont think I get called by anything worse if i bet. When he shoves are there enough bluffs in his range to call? Only getting 2-1 as well.

I tend to agree that there is not much (if any) value betting the river. Shoving is out of the question imo because it obviously allows villain to fold the hands ur beating and call with ones ur not.

I think i c/f here as I dont think villain does this often with air and I can def see him shoving the river with KJ, KT, as I think these are in his button PF flatting range.

Yeah sick spot...

I would bet/fold turn a bit more, like 5.25

On the river either check-fold, or what seems ok for me, make a smallish gayblocking-bet, like $3-4. This cannot guarentee you won't be bluffed, but I think the probability is less + you will be called by worse often.

I like a check fold on the river, but prefer checking the turn.
