      Full Tilt No-Limit Hold'em, $0.05 BB (9 handed) - Full Tilt Converter Tool from

      Hero (UTG) ($7.90)

      MP2 ($5.44)
      MP3 ($3.73)
      CO ($2.92)
      Button ($2.31)
      SB ($7.71)
      BB ($13.43)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with A, Q
      Hero bets $0.15, 2 folds, MP2 calls $0.15, 3 folds, SB calls $0.13, 1 fold

      Flop: ($0.50) J, 6, Q (3 players)

      Turn: ($3.86) J (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks, MP2 bets $1.35, SB calls $1.35, Hero calls $1.35

      River: ($7.91) 4 (3 players)
      SB bets $3.95, Hero folds, 1 fold

      Total pot: $7.91 | Rake: $0.52

      What is his likely holding in this spot. I personally put him on a busted straight draw when he shoved the river, because not much else makes sense.

      QJ wouldn't ck/r flop and then ck/ca turn after turning a full house

      Q6, J6 are unlikely anyway

      all sets would ck/r turn after ck/r flop, because they turned a full house as well

      AK or T9 because he might think on the flop he can win the pot by ck/r and then on the turn realises that he can't therefore ck/ca and on river turns the hand into a bluff

      Hello BrinkyBill,

      Preflop: Raise 4xBB on those limits rather than 3x. So you will get a lot more value with your strong hands.
      Postflop: Why should he Check/Raise with draw on flop? While he just gets great odds for a draw Call there. He basically has a very strong hand there more often therefore I'd Bet/Fold the flop. And a set of 66 is possible as well on flop and of course QJ and so on which easily beat us.

      Best regards.
