      Do you think I could have played this better? I bet on the flop for implied odds, then made a pretty weak bet on the turn coz I didn't want to push him off the pot, but I think my reraise was a bit much. Should I have just called n took another shot on the river?

      For starters I would've raised preflop to 4xbb + 1/limper, so raise to 0.60 preflop, perhaps add one bb for being in the BB. Then just cbet the flop as normal. As played I think you should bet the turn slightly bigger, 0.10 more so 0.50, and then reraise his raise ofc since you want to build the pot even bigger with your nutflush.

      it says on the SHC just to call AQ in the blinds, I guess thats coz I'm oop for the rest of the hand, I was thinkin that too though. I think I made my hand kinda obvious on the turn though -_- I've seen people minraise a pot like that back n forth n end up all in so maybe I shoulda minraised back lol.

      Yeah ok, I don't play by the SHC exactly so :) . But I think that you will end up taking the pot right there preflop or at the very least get at least one of them to fold preflop if you raise. And no I don't think it's better to minraise the turn, if he had a flush he certainly would've stacked off, and I think he might've very well called your raise with a set or top2pair as well knowing NL10 players.

      preflop: raising or checking is fine, but I prefer raising

      flop and turn are well played: you want to get all money into the middle, so no time to slowplay.
