      PokerStars Zoom No-Limit Hold'em, $0.10 BB (9 handed) - PokerStars Converter Tool from

      Button ($4.84)
      SB ($10.57)
      BB ($21.07)
      UTG ($1.14)
      UTG+1 ($13.34)
      MP1 ($9.37)
      MP2 ($21.21)
      Hero (MP3) ($16.98)
      CO ($22.08)

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with Q, A
      4 folds, Hero bets $0.30, 1 fold, Button calls $0.30, 2 folds

      Flop: ($0.75) Q, 9, 4 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.45, Button calls $0.45

      Turn: ($1.65) 8 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1, Button calls $1

      River: ($3.65) 6 (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.10, Button calls $3.09 (All-In)

      Total pot: $9.83 | Rake: $0.44

      Villain is an unknown midstack which seems to be a good start for me to get value postflop.

      I definately should have thought slightly harder and bet larger on both flop and turn to make river jam easier, ingame I was momentarily scared of being raised off my hand and made my bet cheaper in case that happened. Had my auto-pilot turned on and didn't realise my sizing mistake till too late :(

      anyway, I didn't bet bigger on flop or turn, so maybe a river shove is too thin?

      Hello DaPhunk,

      Flop: Yep, I'd definitely Bet it bigger on such a draw-heavy board.

      As played
      River: Kind of thin spot, especially almost every draw got there as JT/FD. Therefore you could even consider just shipping it as well while he wont be betting with a lot worse anyways. But if you think he is a loose guy and is capable having enough of Qx hands then just ship it.

      Best Regards.

      Yea ok. I was just going on the fact that he was unknown and my database of players is already quite sizeable. I think that isn't really a good enough read on someone to be honest to go for this very thin river shove.
