      Turn: ($7.60) 6 (2 players)
      Hero bets $5.25, Button calls $5.25

      River: ($18.10) A (2 players)
      Hero bets $17.60 (All-In)

      The raise size preflop was a missclick I would've made it 5x normally.

      On the river I thought that I would be able to force him out of a split, because I think his range mainly consists of Qx and some straight draws and on the river the backdoor flush hits and I think the A :diamond: hits my range of barreling much more than the range he is calling me down.

      Villain played tight on the first 50 hands, reggish looking, not much else to add.

      You have to be really good postflop to play profitable Q4s from MP
      Problem at your river shove is that he would have there also quite often AQ that would stack you and if player is playeing tight he would likely not have there too many Qx combos, maybe KQ, QJs, QTs
      And more often you may see some missed draws like TJs, 78s So personally I´d check river and decide if I want to call his bet or not. If it is like half potsize bet then it should be easy call. Against shove I might consider folding
