      Hi,
      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.04 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:

      $1.00
      CO (Hero):
      $6.48
      BU:
      $5.93
      SB:
      $2.09
      BB:
      $4.72
      MP2:
      $7.90


      Preflop: Hero is CO with Q, Q.
      MP3 posts deadblind, MP2 raises to $0.08, MP3 calls $0.04, Hero raises to $0.38, 3 folds, MP2 calls $0.30, MP3 folds.

      Flop: ($0.9) 6, K, 8 (2 players)
      MP2 checks, Hero bets $0.50, MP2 calls $0.50.

      Turn: ($1.9) 7 (2 players)
      MP2 checks, Hero checks.

      River: ($1.9) 3 (2 players)
      MP2 bets $0.95, Hero calls $0.95.

      Final Pot: $3.8.

      At that time was about 35 hands with vpip 50/20/1.5 or so ,but he was clearly out of line,played a lot of pots,called something ,very suspicious guy. My reason to cbet was that one of them can have Ax which have some equity,later I played like wa/wb.
      Thanks
      :f_confused: but can be :f_cool:

      Until you have no history if he would float for example that board Ax and then bet river or if he can valuebet worse hands then calling down half potsize bet is fine. Don´t think you´re ahead that often and he mostly has there Kx, but you can make future better reads if you know how he plays and calls pf, so I don´t mind call

      He understands how to bet thin or he bluffed me ;)
      Results follow:

      Hero shows a pair of queens(Q Q).
      MP2 shows a pair of eights(8 A).

      Hero wins with a pair of queens(Q Q).

      Thanks and Merry Christmas! :)
      Best regards.
