      imho you raise too small from blinds being OOP, $0.45 would be ok.On turn QQ have good showdown value I would check and try to induce bluff from 88,99.I don't know is it worth to bluff on turn against ss.Bet on the river very questionable after 2 calls,what worse hands can call you? pp88-JJ when you bet 3 times A.. board?.If he is not super agro imho on the river u beat too often.

      Hello Backcushion,

      Preflop: As was earlier mentioned that you have to raise bigger here, ~$0.50 would do it.

      Turn: I'd usually let him bluff in such situations and Check/Call but the 2nd barrel ain't wrong if you want to get protection from draws.
      River: How have you seen the opponent? Do you have any notes on him, since you don't have stats on the tables you have to take a lot of notes on the opponents, how do they play all the streets, do they take stabs on river with bluff and etc stuff, a lot or writing must be done on Cake. :tongue: But usually I don't really expect him to bet out there with a lot weaker hand so therefore I'd Check/Fold against passive opponent if I'd reads on him I would inclined to Call.

      Best regards.
