      PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em, $0.05 BB (6 handed) - Poker-Stars Converter Tool from

      SB ($0.56)
      BB ($5.42)
      UTG ($5.03)
      MP ($1.88)
      Hero (CO) ($11.22)
      Button ($5.16)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A, K
      UTG calls $0.05, MP calls $0.05, Hero raises to $0.30, Button raises to $0.65, 4 folds, Hero calls $0.35

      Flop: ($1.47) J, Q, J (2 players)
      Hero checks, Button checks

      Turn: ($1.47) 10 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1, Button calls $1

      Hero bets $2, Button raises to $3.51 (All-In), Hero calls $1.51

      Total pot: $10.49 | Rake: $0.50

      Button had Q, Q (full house, Queens over Jacks).
      Hero mucked A, K (straight, Ace high).
      Outcome: Button won $9.99

      Any advise?

      I´d shove pf, since BU is middlestack and you don´t hit oftene nough and have to play c/f flop.

      Uhm this was NL5...

      I was deep stack, he was regular stack hence I didn't want to shove.

      Thought definition of a stack is 100BB (even if table limit is 200BB buy-in). Correct me if I am wrong.

      Ppl on NL5 usually dont 3bet preflop with marginal hands. I have always thought they are more keen in calling than raising after a raise. what do you think he could be 3betting with? I would put him on AQ+, JJ+ or so. Of course its player dependent but still. From his range i think he would bet AA, KK, AQ on flop most probably. Your turn bet is ok imo. But i dont like at all your river line. Bet/call is so wrong there imo.

      What can you beat on river? Something that wouldnt bet the flop which has loads of draws and later cold call your turn bet when even more draws possible. I cant see anything really. Some weirdly played hands maybe. I would definately not bet the river - play check/fold or check/call. Dont know if i would be able to fold nut straight here although its looks so bad for our hand.

      I think in this case you showing results spoiled all evaluation. Without results would be much better.
