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

      BTN: $2.48
      Hero (SB): $3.72
      BB: $3.84
      UTG: $4.62
      MP: $5.58
      CO: $1.74

      Hero posts SB $0.01, BB posts BB $0.02

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.03) Hero has 6:spade: 6:club:

      fold, fold, fold, BTN raises to $0.08, Hero calls $0.07, BB calls $0.06

      Flop: ($0.24, 3 players) 5:club: 6:heart: T:diamond:
      Hero checks, BB checks, BTN checks

      Turn: ($0.24, 3 players) Q:club:
      Hero bets $0.16, BB raises to $0.43, BTN calls $0.43, Hero raises to $1.30, BB calls $0.87, BTN calls $0.87

      River: ($4.14, 3 players) 4:diamond:
      [color=red]Hero bets $x?

      PF: Standard call for set value.

      F: Only strong draw on the board is 78, 34, so I figure it's OK for me to slowplay.

      T: Unfortunately, no one bets so I decide I better start building a pot now and I'm faced with a raise. The only hand I'm behind against is TT since it is unlikely for either opponent to play QQ this way. The board is offering a lot of draws so I decide it best to 3-bet. I'd put the BB on {QT, AQo, 55} and the BU on {AQo or some type of broadway draw}.

      R: I have $2.34 remaining in my stack, BB has more than me and BU has around $1 while the pot is $4. Not sure whether I should I just shove the rest in or try to get less, say $1.25, because I look so strong with my line on the previous street.

      How big should I have made the 3-bet on the turn?
      How big should I value bet on river?

      Since c/r seems too strong 3-way I would prefer leading flop. On the turn I would make at least 1.5$ and then would shove any river
      As played: river shove is fine, since one of them should have strong enough hand to go showdown (two pair)

      best regards,
