      UTG: $8.16 (163.2 bb)
      MP: $8.09 (161.8 bb)
      CO: $4.26 (85.2 bb)
      BTN: $7.96 (159.2 bb)24/9/3.4/0.0/33/206 Agg Freq 43% Fold to Flop C-Bet 50%(10) Fold to pre-flop 3-Bet 0%(3)
      SB: $3.15 (63 bb)
      Hero (BB): $8.24 (164.8 bb) 22/19/4.3/9.3/32/220

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K K
      3 folds, BTN raises to $0.10, SB calls $0.08, Hero raises to $0.60, BTN calls $0.50, SB folds

      Flop: ($1.30) 2 T Q (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.85, BTN calls $0.85

      When he calls here I put him on Qx hands. He could also have a hand like AT that he called a 3-Bet with pre-flop. I think its hard for him to have KJ but could be possible.

      Turn: ($3) Q (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.60, BTN raises to $3.20, Hero folds

      His Qx hands have hit and I think most of his range should have Qx hands only like AQ, KQ.

      Should I bet again here or will check/fold be too weak?

      $6.20 pot ($0.26 rake)
      Final Board: 2 T Q Q
      BTN mucked and won $5.94 ($2.89 net)
      Hero mucked K K and lost (-$3.05 net)

      Bet the flop bigger. Around $1.

      If you put him on Qx hands, why do you bet the river? What worse hands do you think are calling you there?

      I would not bet turn. He often has there Qx and I would rather give him option to be his floats/draws/worse hands and trying to go showdown. Also if you´re folding to min-raise then turn bet for value isn´t really the best option

      best regards,
