      Link to my locker room-thread:

      This hand puzzled me a bit after i had played it.
      When i did, i felt i acted very naturally and never doubted that I was ahead in the hand.. not until the river showed the third spade, but then I thought well he hasnt got kings since he checked turn (unless he wants to slowplay) and he hasnt got aces cause then he would have re-raised me preflop and/or post-flop so I guessed my queens were the nuts unless he has three of a kind or hit the flush..

      But I figured I had to show agression because he would have been just as scared of that flush draw as me.

      Id like to know if I played the hand correctly or not?
      The check on turn is arguable, but I wanted to get some kind of tell on how strong he was in the hand.. Maybe I should have bet for value there, i dont know.

      Hello Alvan85,

      Add to full stack if playing BSS.

      Preflop: Against 3xBB raises I'd rather use bigger raise as well, so 4x his raise rather than give him great odds for set mining.

      As played
      Postflop: Flop seems to be fine. Although I don't understand why do you almost pot the river? In his range is still even flush-draw there on flop and of course Kx hands. Did you turn your hand into bluff or? At the best we could consider Block-bet/Folding there like $1 if anything at all. But making it almost pot size is just horrible mistake, value-towning yourself.

      Best Regards.
