      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3:
      $23.04
      CO:
      $26.15
      BU (Hero):
      $25.00
      SB:
      $39.67
      BB:
      $18.68
      MP2:
      $25.00


      Preflop: Hero is BU with Q, Q.
      MP2 folds, MP3 calls $0.25, CO folds, Hero raises to $1.00, 2 folds, MP3 calls $0.75.

      Flop: ($2.35) 8, 9, 9 (2 players)
      MP3 checks, Hero bets $1.75, MP3 raises to $3.50, Hero calls $1.75.

      Turn: ($9.35) 3 (2 players)
      MP3 bets $4.44, Hero calls $4.44.

      River: ($18.23) 5 (2 players)
      MP3 checks, Hero checks.

      Final Pot: $18.23.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows two pairs, queens and nines(Qh Qc).
      MP3 shows two pairs, nines and eights(7s 8s).

      Hero wins with two pairs, queens and nines(Qh Qc).

      villain is a 32/2 and i have a read on him that he L/c pre and then cr when he hits a top pair(any kicker)

      So OTF im pretty much never getting away here since it looks so much like some kind of 8x. I think if he had a 9 he would like to slowplay it so im pretty much giving him a range of something like 55-77,A8,K8,78,68,J8,TT+, and some 9x combos(not sure he would cr) so my plan here is basically to call him down.

      OTR he has never 8x or fullhouse => I'd go for value bet vs a fishky player ...

      Hi,

      I think you can consider also raising turn and shoving river, since 9x should not bet small on the turn, but if you want to go pot control then calling is fine.
      If you bet river you have to call shove, but consider he should shove all the better hands I would also b/c there 11$. Very rarely he has there better hand and you can be sure he is going to call you down with TT/JJ and 8x

      best regards,
