      Hello lukezo,

      Flop: Basically I'd just bet the flop and that's all and likely maybe get value from Qx/weaker Ax/draws.

      As played
      Turn: I'd even raise it bigger here ~$0,70.
      River: And CBet like $1 because there aren't that many worse hands which may Call us if we really do that big. He will have hard time to Call with them. And as you said, that he can't have many worse hands then you shouldn't Call either there. :) There are only like few combos, maybe some A8 and that's likely it. Don't think that he would Call it on turn with Jx or Qx vs your raise. Would be an option as well that he slowplayed some set/straight type of hand. Therefore for conclusion while there aren't that many hands what we beat I'd even prefer Bet/Folding.

      Board: Q:club: A:spade: 4:diamond:  J:diamond:  8:club:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    87.50%  87.50%   0.00% { JJ, 44, AQs, A8s, KTs, T9s, AQo, A8o, KTo, T9o }
      UTG+1  12.50%  12.50%   0.00% { AhJh }


      Best regards.

      I wanted to say that he can have many worse hands than ours, because I didn't Cbet and turn raise might look as a bluff. I think he can have many worse 2pair combinations.

      When calculating equity it is CO vs BB.

      The problem is that he would be more inclined to bet bigger on turn with strong hands. Plus as well such small bets usually indicate to a draw most of the time or weak hand. And now what is he doing on river -> the opposite -> which usually indicates to the strength.
