      Preflop: Hero is BU with Q, Q.
      5 folds, Hero raises to $0.35, BB calls $0.25.

      Flop: ($0.7) 2, 2, T (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.40, BB calls $0.40.

      Turn: ($1.5) 6 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.80, BB calls $0.80.

      River: ($3.1) 6 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $2.00, BB raises to $5.00, Hero calls $3.00.

      Final Pot: $13.1.


      So I think the hand was played good till the river.
      I open raised from bu.
      On the flop I think I'm ahead so I bet, he calls.
      On turn he checks, i bet again,... if he had reraised me on turn I would've think about him having an overpair or set, but he just calls.

      On the river, he checks i bet then he reraises me 2.5X
      Against his range ( put him on 88+, AQs+)
      I'm 59% preflop, slightly better on flop and on the river I'm 70%,
      so I called 3 to a pot of 10.1.

      I didn't knew the exact numbers ( i used equilator later) but I knew with QQ I have enough equity against his range and pot odds 1:3, so fold was out of the question, but on the other hand, river reraise is kinda odd, i think he would not bluff often in that spot.

      opinions?

      Don´t really see how he can have 6x unless he really decides to c/c flop with A6 or have 66, also 2x is unlikely. I would also likely call river, since he may sometimes turn hands like 88 into bluff, although that is very unlikely, but since too few hand combos beat us I´m always suspicious with very strong hand

      Hello Wertoph,

      I still guess that we don't beat that many hands there unless we know the opponent better. If he is some kind of maniac and capable of even turning his hand into bluff then I'd say Calling on river should be fine, although if we rather against some passive one then I don't like the Call at all there. People tend not to bluff that often on NL10 and of course not on river.

      Best regards.
