      SB: $8.94 (89.4 bb)
      BB: $7.58 (75.8 bb)
      UTG: $12.68 (126.8 bb)
      MP: $17.31 (173.1 bb)
      Hero (CO): $12.45 (124.5 bb)
      BTN: $14.29 (142.9 bb)

      villain 49/23/0.4/40%WTS/~40hands, seems like a pretty huge fish

      river fold too nitty? not a lot of hands, but dont think he donks river so small with busted FD or weak Qx, FTcbet is 20% so i think he can easily have 6x or 5x in his range.
      arguement for calling was that i dont have to be correct all that often for it to be profitable but ingame i felt i was barely ever going to be shown a worse hand.
      i also think my bet sizing could of been bigger? dont see the point of balancing against this guy

      Preflop: Hero is CO with Q:diamond: K:heart:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, 2 folds, BB calls $0.20

      Flop: ($0.65) Q:heart: 6:heart: 5:spade: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.45, BB calls $0.45

      Turn: ($1.55) 6:diamond: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $1.05, BB calls $1.05

      River: ($3.65) 5:club: (2 players)
      BB bets $1, Hero folds

      Results: $3.65 pot ($0.17 rake)
      Final Board: Q:heart: 6:heart: 5:spade: 6:diamond: 5:club:
      BB mucked and won $3.48 ($1.68 net)
      Hero mucked Q:diamond: K:heart: and lost (-$1.80 net)

      Hi dannywratten,

      yeah i would bet a bit more flop vs player like that to lets say 0.5$~0.6$.

      About river i am not going to fold that one. You have to pay 1$ to win $4.65. In that case you have to be ahead only more than 21% so almost only onec in five times. Do you really expect that you are not ahead often enough??.

      If you do than this fold is correct. Otherwise of course you can find here an easy call. I would call that for sure. If we loose we also get pretty nice information on this fish's play and we can use it in upcoming hands to get our money back:)

      Hello dannywratten,

      Against that kind of fish I tend to Bet bigger on the flop & turn. And for the given odds I's still Call even down, he may come up with weaker Qx and of course even A high there.

      Best Regards.
