      Preflop: Hero is CO with Q Q
      2 folds, MP1 raises to $1.50, 2 folds, Hero calls $1.50, 2 folds, BB calls $1

      Flop: ($4.75) 9 T 6 (3 players)
      BB bets $4.75, MP1 folds, Hero calls $4.75

      Turn: ($14.25) 4 (2 players)
      BB bets $14.25, Hero calls $14.25

      River: ($42.75) T (2 players)
      BB bets $26.95 and is all-in, Hero folds

      Villain looks fishy and loose, 31/23/6.3, 50 hands, AF=4.5, donk flop 2/2.
      I don't 3bet against the shortstacker because he is folding 80%, so I figure I'd be getting it in only against AK and JJ+ which is not excellent.

      The fish instapots it on flop and turn. I was willing to go broke with the hand but the T on the river made me reconsider. His line doesn't make a lot of sense unless he has the flush. On the turn I figured I may have had outs in case I was not good.
      He may have had complete air, I have seen them do this so many times.

      Hello circoflax,

      Would be already concerned about the pot size bet on the flop. We can't even be sure if we are willing to continue on the turn. He may pot there again and therefore definitely we have to rather consider folding the hand. To avoid complications I might just give it up on the flop instead.

      Seems like one of your leaks what could be is that you are way too often wasting money by calling flop & turn and then folding river. Take a look at those spots.

      Best Regards.
