      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero is MP1 with J :diamond: J :heart:
      UTG raises to $0.07, 1 fold, Hero raises to $0.22, 5 folds, UTG calls $0.15

      Flop: ($0.47) 8 :heart: Q :diamond: 5 :heart: (2 players)
      UTG checks, Hero bets $0.24, UTG calls $0.24

      Turn: ($0.95) A :heart: (2 players)
      UTG checks, Hero bets $0.44, UTG folds

      Thoughts? I think i might fold out a bunch of Qx hands here, and i have equity against better hands with my backdoor draw.

      yup, turn is a great scare card, u can rep Ax, flushes....

      What is the reasoning for preflop 3betting?
      I don't mind it as long as we play NL2 and we are expecting worse hands to call.
      But what are you going to do against a 4bet?

      Cbetting flop is good for me. There are worse hands that could call us, and also we can pick up the pot from times to times which is cool of course.

      I don't really want to bet the turn. I'm not really sure if Qx is folding (also they could have FD as well) and we really don't want to get raised.
      So I'd just check back the turn and check/fold river.
