      Hand converted with online hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.04 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Known players:
      BB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BB with Q, Q.
      UTG2 folds, MP1 calls $0.04, 3 folds, BU calls $0.04, SB folds, Hero raises to $0.20, MP1 folds, BU calls $0.16.

      Flop: ($0.46) 3, T, 4 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.33, BU calls $0.33.

      Turn: ($1.12) 6 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.88, BU calls $0.88.

      River: ($2.88) A (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU checks.

      Final Pot: $2.88.

      Results follow:

      BU shows a pair of kings(Kh Ks).

      Hero shows a pair of queens(Qd Qs).

      BU wins with a pair of kings(Kh Ks).

      Villain's Stats: VPIP=17 PFR=4 AF=1.2

      I re-raise pre-flop - which is called. I put the villain on AK or pair below mine.
      With what I believe is top pair on the flop, I bet (is this enough considering the flush draw possibilities?). The Turn card doesn't bother me greatly, so I bet again. Would you say this is okay? Or should I be worried enough about Trip 10's (or even trip 3's/4's) to Check?
      After this raise is called - I'm pretty sure I'm beat by trips - and with an A coming on the River, I just check.
      Other than the Trip 10's possibility, is there any way I could/should have read what the Villain actually had - or is this just unlucky to get the person playing this strong hand so poorly pre-flop.

      Hello BigZebula,

      Preflop: 2 limpers + being OOP I'd raise even bigger ~$0,28. :)
      Postflop: Seems to be fine, not much you could have done differently. Either I would have block-bet/Fold the river or Check cause he is passive and wont bet with worse.

      Best Regards.
