      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with A:diamond: , K:club:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0,08, MP3 calls $0,06, CO folds, BU calls $0,08, 2 folds.

      Flop: ($0,25) A:spade: , Q:heart: , 7:heart: (3 players)
      Hero bets $0,22, MP3 folds, BU calls $0,22.

      Turn: ($0,69) 2:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0,52, BU calls $0,52.

      River: ($1,73) 5:club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU checks.

      Final Pot: $1,73

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows (Ad Kc)
      BU shows two-pair, queens and sevens (Qc 7c)

      BU wins with two-pair, queens and sevens (Qc 7c)

      BU is a fish, 57 vpip, he can be playing a lot of hands. Standard Cbet on the flop and what to do on the turn. I chose to protect again against the flush draw and even against Qx hands. On the river, pot control. Is this a right play?

      Hello Elertar,

      Not much you can do there I would very likely play the same way. Nice hand! Not much value on river, of course he is a fish but still even a draw completed and better hands are possible, rather skip the thin value and most likely even Check/Fold it.

      Best regards.
