      Known players:
      BU (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BU with 2, 2.
      4 folds, MP3 calls $0.05, CO folds, Hero calls $0.05, SB calls $0.03, BB raises to $0.10, MP3 calls $0.05, Hero calls $0.05, SB calls $0.05.

      Flop: ($0.4) Q, A, 2 (4 players)

      Turn: ($1.1) 4 (2 players)

      BB bets $1.00, Hero raises to $2.82, BB calls $1.82.

      Final Pot: $7.54.
      opponent was unknown but I should not have slow played?
      thought he had top pair or 2 pair and tried to earn a lot of money.
      would you play this hand differently?

      Hello daisuke3823,

      Add to full stack if you are playing BSS.

      Flop: I would even often raise him right here to start building up the pot earlier since he will be Calling us with any Ax type of hand but if you are trying to get SB along then sure, you can just Call.

      As played if flop Called
      Turn: We definitely have to raise it here, will be easier to shove on river if he decides to Check.

      As played
      River: Shoving is likely fine, since I still expect for him to have a lot of Aces with his range with what he is going to Call since he gets pretty good odds.

      Best regards.
