      TURN ($5.30) 8:club: 2:spade: 7:diamond: 6:heart:

      RIVER ($11.70) 8:club: 2:spade: 7:diamond: 6:heart: 4:spade:

      Hero checks, UTG checks

      24/10/3 43 hands (when played PFR was 4)

      So as the PFR looked nitty and he was in early position, I didn't want to stackof preflop against monster, so just called to try to outplay him postflop.

      I call his raise on flop because it is still small, so I think he might wanna bluff, or raise with weaker overpair.

      Turn call for same reason - weaker overpair and reevaluate river.

      ok. I see ur point playing QQ that way. It might be good. Although hard because u are oop.

      what did u want to donk betting flop? with QQ. If donk bet, my line would be dok bet / shove. I like more check/raising . He might think it is a bluff or he might chase his overcards.

      On Turn he showed he has showdown value. because after a reraise flop a cbet turn has showdown value. The problem is his pot size. this is small and in low limits this shows weakness.


      on river i think it is ok.

      5-handed prefer 3-betting for value and if he 4-bets then you can consider folding.
      Postflop I think b/c flop is fine and then calling him down. He would also raise sometimes with worse hands like TT/JJ and he can always bluff there with overcards

      I like more check/raising .


      I don't check because he is not very aggresive and might not cbet with hands like AK, so I miss value and not protect my hand.
