      BTN: $10.00 - VPIP: 8, PFR: 7, 3B: 2, AF: 7.0, Hands: 200

      Hero (UTG+1): $8.50 - VPIP: 15, PFR: 12, 3B: 6, AF: 4.2, Hands: 35507
      MP: $5.85 - VPIP: 35, PFR: 6, 3B: 0, AF: 2.7, Hands: 52
      CO: $4.00 - VPIP: 13, PFR: 13, 3B: 0, AF: NaN, Hands: 8

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is UTG+1 with Q :diamond: A :spade:
      1 fold, Hero raises to $0.40, MP calls $0.40, 4 folds

      Flop: ($0.95) Q :heart: 2 :spade: 4 :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.63, MP raises to $1.26, Hero folds

      I usually have trouble letting go of hands like these and run into sets all the time, but here i managed to fold for once. Not sure if it was a good fold or not, but it just seems that villian always have 2-pair or better in this situation. Villain is very fishy and I don't think he will be bluffing often if at all.

      even if hes really passive i´m never folding on that flop. just call and re-evaluate on turn since theres no card on turn which will be bad for your hand.
      also its a minraise which is often weakness.
      plus theres no draws and not much he can rep.
      no reason to reraise of course since its really dry flop.
      i´d just go into call down mode unless he bets really big on river.

      I see, what would you do on a wet flop?

      be more included to fold sometimes on really wet boards and otherwise calling once and then folding turn if he bets again. really depends on board of course.

      90% of the time I feel a bet like that would mean either air or 2pair/set. If you feel he wouldnt bluff there, do you think he would make that move with a weaker queen? say KQ/QJ/QT and a couple others are all plausible holdings for him on that board, and you might be able to find a call if you think he is capable of c/ring those kind of hands.

      I know what you mean about the 2 pairs/sets - here I highly doubt a 2 pair, possibly a set but I think I'd be inclinded to call given the board texture. I still think KQ, QJ, QT could be in his range given the high VPIP.

      I don't expect bluff too much but if he's on KQ he could think you've missed and jsut standard cbetting? Hence the reraise. I still think I'd see the turn especially since it's a dry board with no drawing hands.

      It is often just Qx, so I wouldn´t really fold there tptk. I think either 3-betting or calling flop adn evaluating turn would be better play
