      I know i should c-bet 100% of the time here but i was just sure he had the queen for some reason. I had been running pretty horribly and just didn't want to inflate the pot with my hand.

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Known players:
      BU:
      $4.02
      SB:
      $4.39
      BB (Hero):
      $5.00
      MP3:
      $1.64
      CO:
      $9.39


      Preflop: Hero is BB with A, A.
      MP3 raises to $0.10, CO folds, BU calls $0.10, SB calls $0.08, Hero raises to $0.50, 2 folds, SB calls $0.40.

      Flop: ($1.2) 6, Q, Q (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks.

      Turn: ($1.2) 4 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.50, SB calls $0.50.

      River: ($2.2) 5 (2 players)
      SB bets $0.55, Hero calls $0.55.

      Final Pot: $3.3.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows two pairs, aces and queens(A A).
      SB shows three of a kind, queens(Q 8).

      SB wins with three of a kind, queens(Q 8).

      Hello swanny36,

      That's exactly the problem when you loosing too much. That you might get tilted and start tightening up and which could as well make loosing a lot value in long run. Rather if you really feel like you loosing too much or not playing your A-Game then just leave the tables and come back in few hours or so.

      About the hand:
      Preflop: Basically I'd even raise bigger like $0,70 while we are OOP and so many limpers.
      Flop: Pretty standard spot to CBet.
      Turn: Don't really understand why you betting that small, rather do it like $1.
      River: Not many worse will Call you anyways and likely safer to Call.

      Best regards.

      yeah think i was actually very tilted at the time looking back. Funny how tilt can show in different ways. I end up playing super tight and check calling far too much.

      Thanks for your help.

      That will disappear with time and practice and of course being active on forums. :)
