      PokerStars - $0.02 NL (6 max) ZOOM - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      Hero (BTN): $2.25
      SB: $0.58
      BB: $7.99
      UTG: $2.58
      MP: $2.66
      CO: $1.40

      SB posts SB $0.01, BB posts BB $0.02

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.03) Hero has Q:heart: Q:diamond:

      UTG raises to $0.04, fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.14, fold, fold, UTG calls $0.10

      Flop: ($0.31, 2 players) 5:spade: A:spade: A:diamond:
      UTG checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($0.31, 2 players) 2:spade:
      UTG bets $0.02, Hero calls $0.02

      River: ($0.35, 2 players) K:spade:
      UTG bets $0.02, Hero calls $0.02

      I know I played this hand terribly, here is what I think I should have done:

      PF: Standard 3-bet IP to protect myself against weaker hands.

      F: Should have definitely bet to protect myself against draws and gain value from weaker pairs.

      T: Should have took into account the small bet sizing here, villain must have a spade, definitely should have bet again.

      R: Villain probably has a weak flush that wants to see a free showdown, could bet to get him to fold.

      Questions: What size should I be making my pre-flop, post-flop and turn bets? Also, if turn wasn't a space, what would be your plan?

      Hey Raknyo,

      Preflop: Make the bet bigger something like 0,2$
      Postflop: Bet the flop(0,2$) and most turns. There should be enough hands that are gonna call you.

      As played:
      Well since you turned your hand into bluffcatcher there is really not much to comment.
