      Villain is basically unknown (only 4 hands)
      Known players:

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant.Base 0.99 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with Q:heart: , Q:diamond:
      3 folds, MP2 raises to $0.04, Hero raises to $0.14, 4 folds, MP2 calls $0.10.

      Flop: ($0.31) A:heart: , 9:heart: , 3:diamond: (2 players)
      MP2 checks, Hero bets $0.15, MP2 calls $0.15.

      Turn: ($0.61) 4:spade: (2 players)
      MP2 checks, Hero checks.

      River: ($0.61) A:spade: (2 players)
      MP2 bets $0.04, Hero calls $0.04.

      Final Pot: $0.69

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      MP2 shows (2h 2s)
      Hero shows two-pair, aces and queens (Qh Qd)

      Hero wins with two-pair, aces and queens (Qh Qd)

      Flop: I never know whether I should be cbetting in these spots. I kind of feel obliged to cbet because I was the pfa and I can represent the ace. But if you ask me what worse hand will call my bet here and what better hand will fold, the cbet doesn't feel so smart to me.

      Turn, river: playing check/call against reasonable bet sizes. (What's with villain's 1/15 pot bet on river??)

      Hello member001,

      Flop: Nah, CBetting is still fine there, there are still like a lot of smaller PPs which may be possible that he is calling while those players are pretty loose on those stakes and as well even FD is possible. So therefore I don't mind the CBet. Although I would do it a bit bigger like $0,22.
      River: Not much to add, it's likely just a weak hand and there is no way I am folding. :D

      Best regards.
