      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (4 handed)
      Known players:
      BU (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BU with A, A.
      CO folds, Hero raises to $0.06, SB calls $0.05, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.14) 2, Q, 9 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.14, SB raises to $0.32, Hero calls $0.18.

      Turn: ($0.78) 5 (2 players)
      SB bets $0.44, Hero calls $0.44.

      River: ($1.66) Q (2 players)
      SB bets $3.01, Hero folds, SB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.66.

      I put him on 99, 22 or maybe Q9 after the play....on the flop I put him on a strong Q something like KQ, so I called it (and I was considering bluff also)
      Should I fold it earlier and where?

      It depends what sort of player the villain is. If he is passive postflop in general we can fold to his turn bet I think, if he's aggressive we still have to fold to the river bet, since Qx is most certainly a large part of his range.

      Do we think he's capable of c/r the flop with flushdraws? If so what else is he raising with? Top pair? Or is it just semi-bluffs and 2 pair+? If so we can fold the turn.

      If he's been spewy before and we've seen him 3barrel bluff a lot I guess we can sometimes cry-call the river, but his river bet gives it all away to me. He overshoves the river when the second Q comes, and generally at these limits bet sizing tells us the strength of villain's hand, and this is strong!

      Good fold on the river in my opinion.
