      Poker Stars, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      BTN: $7.33 (73.3 bb)
      SB: $11.26 (112.6 bb)
      BB: $10 (100 bb)
      UTG: $7.25 (72.5 bb)
      MP: $6.20 (62 bb) unknown
      Hero (CO): $13.09 (130.9 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with 8 8
      UTG folds, MP raises to $0.30, Hero calls $0.30, 3 folds

      Flop: ($0.75) 5 4 Q (2 players)
      MP bets $0.36, Hero calls $0.36

      MP checks, Hero bets $3,...
      MP calls $3

      Results: $8.87 pot ($0.40 rake)
      Final Board: 5 4 Q 8 Q
      MP mucked 7 7 :f_eek: and lost (-$4.36 net)
      Hero showed 8 8 and won $8.47 ($4.11 net)


      Flop: villain's cbet is small and on this board I think I am usually ahead, so I call.

      Turn: villain still looks weak and I think he will fold almost everything if I raise here. I think I get more value if underrepresent my hand and give him a chance to barrel again, so I call.

      River: what do you think of the overbet here? My reasoning was that if villain does not have a Q he is folding anyway, whereas if he has a Q he will call any bet size, so I may as well bet big to get max value from Qx.

      Hello member001,

      Raise the turn and protect your hand, why would you want to give him the change to hit something with his draws whilst his hand rather looks like that with the size on turn. Though otherwise on the river I'd just shove it vs his stack.

      Best Regards.
