      Hero (MP2): $5.32 (133 bb)
      CO: $3.94 (98.5 bb)
      UTG+2: $1.84 (46 bb)
      SB: $4.21 (105.3 bb)
      BB: $4 (100 bb)
      BTN: $5.99 (149.8 bb)
      MP3: $1.48 (37 bb)
      UTG+1: $4 (100 bb)
      MP1: $4.59 (114.8 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with Q Q
      2 folds, MP1 raises to $0.08, Hero raises to $0.24, 5 folds, MP1 calls $0.16

      Flop: ($0.54) A K J (2 players)
      MP1 checks, Hero bets $0.39, MP1 calls $0.39

      Turn: ($1.32) 2 (2 players)
      MP1 checks, Hero checks

      River: ($1.32) T (2 players)
      MP1 bets $0.94, Hero raises to $2.04, MP1 raises to $3.96 and is all-in, Hero calls $1.92

      Results: $9.24 pot ($0.46 rake)
      Final Board: A K J 2 T
      Hero showed Q Q and lost (-$4.59 net)
      MP1 showed J 9 and won $8.78 ($4.19 net)

      Should I just make a call on the river instead of raising?

      If I just call 0.94 I need 41.59% equity. If i put him on a range of QQ, JJ and most high suited connecters I have just 31% equity. However if I include TT and AK, AQ hands then I have 63% equity and it is worth a raise. I could see AK hands calling mr RR although he would have posssibly check raised the flop or at least bet the turn with such a hand and of course AQ is less likely considering the pre-flop action and I have QQ.

      I pretty much insta-called his re-raise which I am very disappointed about and is one of my leaks. Considering his all-in range is just all made flushes then I could still have folded.

      Hello 0744379,

      Flop: Well, I wouldn't bet in the first place here. Do you think you gonna make any hands to fold which called preflop? Only hand which may fold is something like Kx. But we can't be even sure that he lays down it here. His 3bet calling range usually will be also rather stronger unless we expect him to be loose preflop.

      As played
      Turn: Standard Check behind.
      River: From what worse hands do you expect even to get Called? Do you ever think he would Call you 2pairs/sets on such a board? I really doubt that. I'd just Call vs almost his pot size bet. Most likely at the best for us is that he has also Qx.

      Best Regards.
