      Preflop: Hero is BU with Q:club: , T:spade:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0,13, SB folds, BB calls $0,08.
      he has 9/26 (35%) 3bet, so i raise lightly to make it easier for me to call because, well, if he 3bets, i'll want to call

      Flop: ($0,29) T:diamond: , 6:heart: , 2:heart: (2 players)
      BB bets $0,05, Hero raises to $0,19, BB calls $0,14.
      this raise is low, i had in mind that i'd bet 2/3 and the size stuck with me

      Turn: ($0,67) Q:diamond: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0,67, BB raises to $2,68, Hero raises to $6,69 (All-In), BB calls $4,01.
      critical point
      i quickly reviewed all these hands i included and some more, then i decided that top two was good. what do you think?

      River: ($14,05) 8:heart: (2 players)


      Final Pot: $14,05

      Hello Tomaloc,

      Flop: If you even raising then you definitely have to raise it bigger on flop, ~$0,40 even.

      As played
      Turn: As you see you did show strength on flop/turn with even making it pot size. For that given reason I never-ever doubt that he is bluffing here. Most likely it's rather some kind of made hand. Although against his wide VPIP we will have hard time to fold it here while the guy could himself even have any kind of Q:hX type of hand or even worse 2pairs. I don't think that I'd get it away vs such a maniac.

      Best regards.
