      Hero (MP): $2.47 (123.5 bb)
      CO: $0.41 (20.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with Q Q

      $1.39 pot ($0.05 rake)
      Final Board: 4 8 A J 4
      UTG showed J K and lost (-$0.68 net)
      Hero showed Q Q and won $1.34 ($0.66 net)

      PF: 3-bet pot for value and to isolate and play w initiative and position. Narrowed villain's range to a strongish range UTG. AJs, KQs, mid pairs

      Flop: The A high board stopped me from thinking straight for abit. Was thinking if I should c-bet flop, x turn and then call/bet river. But decided to went for x flop, call turn, decide river as my guts left me.

      Turn: When x to me, I know I'm ahead so went ahead to bet for value. And thinking now I should have bet bigger.

      River: His small bet requires me to be right 21% of the time so considering his range I decided to call. His play did feel like he might have an Ax, but also FD, smaller pairs, turned Jx which wants to see a cheap showdown.

      All in all, I feel bet flop, x turn, and then re-evaluate river would be a much better line to take as it gives me a better idea of villain's range?
