      You can also bet 1$ on the river yourself to get called by worse Qx hands, but c/c also half potsize bet should be also fine. he may dry to bluff some of his mossed draws or maybe decides to valuebet Qx

      Hello wlcKeD,

      Preflop: Even raising from UTG is pretty close with such a hand, rather at the 1st learning stage I wouldn't advice to do that and hold it for later positions. Exactly to avoid such spots as you faced.

      As played
      Postflop: He is not going to bet a worse Qx there for the thin value and therefore it's pretty thin Call. We basically beat there a missed draw but do you expect that he is betting his missed draws? One option if you want to get value from some draws I'd basically bet the turn as well for free showdown if he really is somewhat passive player. And likely even Check/Fold it on river or depending on the opponent if he is aggressive enough then Check/Call vs his missed draws. Because they tend usually Check behind with their missed draws.

      Best regards.
