$500 NL HE 6-max: Is that 10% bet normal on the river or dangerous? Would you call a shove afterwards, especially with that hand?

Usually this bet on the river is an inducing one when you have the nuts, or for thin value when you think your opponent will not raise you often enough, or if he does, he does not have much value in his range given how he played the hand, thus you can bluff-catch comfortably. But here, I believe it is a bit dangerous to do so on this runout.

I think the hand was well played. I only would bet so small OTR if I had the nuts. Betting so small villain would think I’m doing a fish move and raise me with a bunch of dominated hands. As played I couldn’t really believe or understand the reason behind this move.

Maybe he is trying to balance for the times he has the nut straight, given that his hand blocks it and can bluff-catch with it at some frequency? I don't know for sure. This small bet makes sense if you have the nuts and trying to induce, especially against a bluffy player, or if you are going for thin value when your opponent can't have that much given how he played his hand

Yes the 10% pot bet on the river out of position is a thing (in GTO). It's basically a thin value bet that he would be making with a lot of marginal hands with a few nutted hands mixed in for protection plus some bluffs.

Qj seems awfully thin here but IP can have JT, KT, JJ, 99, 88 etc all of which would likely play this way to the river. Versus the 2x shove QJ is maybe an ok call in theory as it blocks KJ, though it also blocks logical bluffs, like JJ so maybe not.

Anyway IP is going to have alot of air here so OOP will need to bluff catch some of the time. Had he checked, IP might still have shipped it in anyway
