      Known players:

      0,01/0,02 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.102 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with Q:spade: , Q:club:
      Hero raises to $0,08, 4 folds, BB calls $0,06.

      Flop: ($0,17) K:club: , 6:diamond: , 4:spade: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0,12, BB calls $0,12.

      Turn: ($0,41) Q:heart: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0,29, BB raises to $0,70, Hero calls $0,41.

      River: ($1,81) 6:spade: (2 players)
      BB bets $1,34 (All-In), Hero calls $1,34.

      Final Pot: $4,49

      I think a call on the Turn is ok here, because villain is very aggressive and it should be no problem to get his remain stack on the River. But if I 3bet the Turn he would probably fold sometimes.

      Hi Meras18!

      I like hand as played,

      flop is standard C-bet (dry board), turn you can continue, when he raise you, you do not have any reason to get it in, as only $1.3 is remaing and POT is going to be $1.8 and you have position.

      Therefore you can let him bluff into you or in case he will check, you can shove your remaining stack in on river

      Hello Meras18,

      Well, if you expect the opponent even to continue with his hands/bluffs on river then why not to Call. But sometimes the pick as well such a line with GS/SD type of hands here. :) And which wont pay you anyways on river, although they may pay you on turn. For that reason I do sometimes even ship it right on turn while I don't expect them to continue with bluffs anyways on river. :P But of course your play ain't that wrong either.

      Best Regards.
