      I squeezed from SB with JJ. I thought it was a good spot to do that.. But when Q appeared on the flop, I had no idea what to do next OOP. I have a feeling that I always make mistakes in such spots. I supose that betting the flop would be better, but I always get calls in similar situations and don't know how to play turn and river..

      Hello Alleen86,

      Yes, rather CBet on such flop than play Check/Call, although it depends a lot on the opponent. If he is somewhat aggressive one and you expect very often him to raise here, you might want to play this way. But I guess I would likely lay down my hand on river as played unless I know he is capable of bluffing while you chose the passive line. Rather CBet the flop and would get much more information from him. :)

      Best regards.

      I would make a c-bet on the flop and re-evaluate turn.
