      Hand converted with online hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:

      MP1 (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with Q, Q.
      UTG2 folds, Hero raises to $0.20, 5 folds, BB calls $0.15.

      Flop: ($0.42) 4, T, K (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.30, BB calls $0.30.

      Turn: ($1.02) K (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks.

      River: ($1.02) 9 (2 players)
      BB bets $0.50, Hero???

      Villain is unknown only been at table for 2 orbits. cbet flop to get value from draws or a T, After call he may have a K so check back turn as I dont think he'll call worse anymore. Should I b/f turn rather than checking behind then hope for free showdown if he calls. As played the river brings the 9d which compleets QJ for a straight of FD's that I may have allowed to get their by checking the turn. He leads out for 1/2 pot Is their much value left in QQ in this spot

      Hello dannyf85,

      Bet/Fold the turn also for free showdown and maybe even value from draws. But as played, well I doubt that you beat much there but obviously your Check behind could even easily induce him to bluff or even bet with Tx/JJ/weaker PPs for block.

      Best regards.

      Thanks coach it seems I miss a lot of second barrel spots to gain a free showdown. maybe I check behind too often and allow myself to be bluffed out of the pot
