      Poker Stars, $0.10/$0.25 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 4 Players

      BB: $21.60 (86.4 bb) 22/16/3.3/14.0/11/123 Flop C-Bet 75%(4)
      Hero (CO): $25.79 (103.2 bb) 10/9/2.3/7.4/50/81
      BTN: $25 (100 bb)
      SB: $20.46 (81.8 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with Q K
      Hero raises to $0.75, 2 folds, BB raises to $2.50, Hero calls $1.75

      Flop: ($5.10) A 7 3 (2 players)
      BB bets $3.05, Hero calls $3.05

      Turn: ($11.20) Q (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      Usually I bet/fold here however I thought I'd try somethign new. I don't expect him to have an A as he'd 2nd barrell with one so I think I'll check behind to induce a bluff from him on the river. If he doesn't bet the river then I'll go ahead and bet.

      River: ($11.20) 6 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $5.25, BB calls $5.25

      Hello maheepsangari,

      Preflop: Without any specific dynamics or good sample size I would just 4bet/Fold myself rather than Call and play postflop.

      As played
      Postflop: I'd just Check behind the river, what worse calls you?

      Best Regards.
