      Preflop: Hero is BB with Q K
      2 folds, MP1 raises to $0.15, 5 folds, Hero calls $0.10

      Flop: ($0.32) Q J 2 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP1 bets $0.15, Hero calls $0.15

      Turn: ($0.62) K (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.47, MP1 raises to $1.23, Hero folds

      Results:
      $1.56 pot ($0.08 rake)
      Final Board: Q J 2 K
      MP1 mucked and won $1.48 ($0.71 net)
      Hero mucked Q K and lost (-$0.77 net)

      MP1 Stats: VPIP: 30, PFR: 13, 3B: 6, AF: 2.7, Hands: 88

      Went for a call PF due to his small raise mainly, and because I thought that QKs in a spot like that was too weak to fold.
      Flop I decide to go for pot control way ahead/way behind, but on the Turn I get Top TwoPair and decided to bet, but re-analyzing it I'm not even certain of the reason why I did that.

      Thoughts?

      Hello AtrociousNightmare,

      Donking the turn is still fine cause he bets so small on the flop but afterwards is the question if we can continue. Most likely is going to be safer to leave the pot alone while I can't see that many worse hands which raise while some SD also got there.

      Best Regards.
