      PokerStars - $0.10 NL - Holdem - 8 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      Hero (BB): $10.15
      UTG: $10.30
      UTG+1: $10.15
      MP: $10.00
      MP+1: $10.00
      CO: $10.41
      BTN: $10.00
      SB: $10.53

      SB posts SB $0.05, Hero posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero has Q:diamond: Q:club:

      fold, UTG+1 raises to $0.40, MP calls $0.40, fold, fold, fold, fold, Hero calls $0.30

      Flop: ($1.25, 3 players) 8:diamond: 2:heart: 2:diamond:
      Hero checks, UTG+1 bets $0.90, fold, Hero calls $0.90

      Turn: ($3.05, 2 players) 4:heart:
      Hero checks, UTG+1 bets $1.90, Hero calls $1.90

      River: ($6.85, 2 players) 2:club:
      Hero checks, UTG+1 bets $4.00, Hero calls $4.00

      UTG+1 shows A:diamond: A:spade: (Full House, Twos full of Aces) (Pre 82%, Flop 92%, Turn 95%)
      Hero mucks Q:diamond: Q:club: (Full House, Twos full of Queens) (Pre 18%, Flop 8%, Turn 5%)
      UTG+1 wins $14.18

      UTG raise seems strong always, but there could be many more hands than AA / KK as villian was not nit..

      Now i try to pot control and keep hes range wide and AK, 1010, JJ, FD-s etc.. barreling, but i wonder if river value bet should be alarming there? I have many spots like these and i find very hard to lay down QQ or KK there! Any opinions?

      Hello RobertDaPro,

      If we are calling it anyways down then rather just 3bet it preflop and get it in. With such calls it's usually pretty difficult to see a lot worse hands while he also sees that not many worse hands pays him if for example he has JJ. Therefore might be even a crying fold on the river.

      He isn't betting AK there and neither not sure if he ever bets TT/JJ for such a value.

      Best Regards.
