      Poker Stars, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 9 Players

      BTN: $9.85 (98.5 bb)
      SB: $13.85 (138.5 bb) unknown
      BB: $6.99 (69.9 bb)
      UTG+1: $9.32 (93.2 bb)
      Hero (UTG+2): $17.30 (173 bb)
      MP1: $13.91 (139.1 bb)
      MP2: $13.65 (136.5 bb)
      MP3: $11.95 (119.5 bb)
      CO: $10.45 (104.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG+2 with Q Q
      UTG+1 folds, Hero raises to $0.40, 5 folds, SB calls $0.35, BB calls $0.30

      Flop: ($1.20) T 2 J (3 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, Hero bets $0.95, SB raises to $1.90, BB folds, Hero calls $0.95

      Turn: ($5.00) 3 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($5.00) 8 (2 players)
      SB bets $3.10, Hero folds

      Flop: do not want to fold to minraise, but do not want to isolate myself against sets, so I call. Yet again, I'm nervous of going broke because we are a bit deeper.
      Turn: flush completes so no point betting. Check behind and hope to see a
      River: looks like he had it, standard fold?

      Hello member001,

      Overall seems to be fine if you assume he isn't going to bluff the river. Although myself I'd just Bet/Fold the turn cause if he Check/Raises there we are very likely vs flush. But meanwhile we allow him to bluff/block-bet the river like that and maybe even sometimes hit a straight.

      Best Regards.
