      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant.Base 0.99 by

      Preflop: Hero is UTG2 with A:spade: , Q:diamond:
      UTG1 calls $0.05, Hero raises to $0.20, 7 folds, UTG1 calls $0.15.

      Flop: ($0.47) Q:heart: , 9:heart: , 6:club: (2 players)
      UTG1 checks, Hero bets $0.3, UTG1 calls $0.30.

      Turn: ($1.07) 5:heart: (2 players)
      UTG1 checks, Hero bets $0.6, UTG1 calls $0.60.

      River: ($2.27) 2:spade: (2 players)
      UTG1 checks, Hero checks.

      Final Pot: $2.27

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      UTG1 shows (Kd Qc)
      Hero shows a pair of queens (As Qd)

      Hero wins with a pair of queens (As Qd)

      I have been burned a few times overplaying my TPTK type hands, and tend instinctively to slow down when villain calls a couple of streets. But here, I think I missed value. After he checks to me on river, we know he does not have a slowplayed monster, so he must have a showdown value type of hand (AQ, KQ, QJ, unlikely TT-JJ) and I am definitely ahead. Do you agree?

      Hello member001,

      Preflop: I'd still raise on those limits 4xBB + 1 per limper.
      Postflop: I'd even do a bit bigger bets on flop & turn and definitely bet the river as well even at least $1. If he really had some kind of strong hand then they are very often just donking themselves. And it's not that hard to Bet/Fold the river. :)

      Best regards.
