      BB: $10.15 - VPIP: 24, PFR: 16, 3B: 0, AF: 1.5, Hands: 79

      SB: $5.70 - VPIP: 13, PFR: 10, 3B: 13, AF: NaN, Hands: 30

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is UTG with Q :club: A :heart:
      Hero raises to $0.40, 4 folds, BB calls $0.30

      Flop: ($0.85) 5 :heart: 6 :spade: 4 :heart: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($0.85) 7 :heart: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.60, BB calls $0.60

      River: ($2.05) 5 :spade: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $1.70

      I assume he is a REG.
      So his likely calling range is tight. I think: 22-JJ[QQ] (77-JJ[QQ] if he's good), AQs+, AK. Maybe some additional KQs, AQo. That's it.

      When he checks twice to me, I take a stab since he looks very weak.
      When he calls Turn, then I can't give him a range of strong holdings, so I bluff river.

      It is strange that he calls Turn and is not betting himself, since I can keep drawing for free. I mean, he should bet T with every overpair.

      EDIT: Also good on the turn that i have A :heart:

      Hello Anger86,

      Why would you skip the flop CB but Bet the turn? Do you Bet there for value or what's the purpose? Also the river, did you Bet for value? Cause quite obviously he is never folding a better hand. :)

      Best Regards.
