      PokerStars - $0.05 NL - Holdem - 8 players

      Hero (SB): $5.02
      BB: $8.04
      UTG: $7.40
      UTG+1: $5.00
      MP: $2.00
      MP+1: $5.12
      CO: $5.00
      BTN: $9.05 ATS 10 / VP 12 / 3B 2 (500 hands sample)

      Hero posts SB $0.02, BB posts BB $0.05

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.07) Hero has Q:heart: Q:club:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, BTN raises to $0.10, Hero raises to $0.35, fold, BTN raises to $0.60, Hero calls $0.25

      Flop: ($1.25, 2 players) 3:diamond: 8:spade: J:heart:
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.90, Hero calls $0.90

      Turn: ($3.05, 2 players) 7:club:
      Hero checks, BTN bets $1.45, fold

      BTN wins $2.92

      I'm wondering if I played to passively or should have called down if no A or K appeared on the board.

      Well.. Too weak play, IMO. If you are set-mining with QQ then fold flop already. But as the board is so weak you should tend to play for stacks when you called it pre.

      I'd consider folding pre, too, as you have already 500 hands and he has 3bet only 2 % of them. Can't see him 3-betting with any other hands than AA/KK in this case, with AK he would probably just give up on flop or turn.

      If setming preflop then we fold flop.

      He seems an overall passive guy so the 4-bet preflop seems very strong.

      If you call the flop and turn comes a blank you still beat/lose to the same number of hands.
