      Poker Stars No-Limit Hold'em, $0.10 BB (6 handed) - Poker Stars Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      BB ($10.80)
      UTG ($8.79)
      MP ($16.61)
      Hero (CO) ($10.51)
      Button ($10)
      SB ($10.05)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with Q, A
      UTG bets $0.30, 1 fold, Hero calls $0.30, 2 folds, BB calls $0.20

      Flop: ($0.95) Q, 10, 5 (3 players)
      BB checks, UTG checks, Hero bets $0.50, BB calls $0.50, 1 fold

      Turn: ($1.95) 4 (2 players)
      BB bets $0.93, Hero calls $0.93

      River: ($3.81) 4 (2 players)
      BB bets $3.64, Hero???

      small sample size on villain. what to do?

      i only beat weaker Qx and i don't see him doing that with this line. flush would not bet big on river, can he have fullhouse or 4x or bluff here? how often do i have to make the right hero call to make it profitable in the future?

      Hello dwyt84,

      Unfortunately we can't do there much and most likely I'd rather fold it on the river, I don't really see us beating much there than just pure bluff.

      But Bet the flop bigger for value and protection. ;)

      Best Regards.
