      Hero (MP1): $4.34 (108.5 bb)
      MP2: $1.26 (31.5 bb)
      MP3: $4.88 (122 bb)
      CO: $3.02 (75.5 bb)
      BTN: $2.85 (71.3 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with Q A
      Hero raises to $0.12, 3 folds, BTN calls $0.12, 2 folds

      Flop: ($0.30) 9 2 3 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.20, BTN calls $0.20

      Turn: ($0.70) Q (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.36, BTN calls $0.36

      River: ($1.42) 2 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.24, Hero calls $0.24

      Results:
      $1.90 pot ($0.12 rake)
      Final Board: 9 2 3 Q 2
      Hero mucked Q A and lost (-$0.92 net)
      BTN showed Q 9 and won $1.78 ($0.86 net)

      VPIP = 70
      PFR =0
      AF =1.5
      Fold-Cbet =50
      WTSD=35 over 60 hands.

      I think cbet at this flop was rather bad. Also, if this type of player had bet bigger at river, would be an easy fold. But is there any point to call if you like the pot odds, when you know he is not likely to bluff at all?

      On the flop we still have the best hand here a lot so cbet is fine.

      On the turn double barrel is also fine, lots of worse can still call.

      On the river why ck/call?

      Why not bet/fold something like 0.80? Can't he call with many worse hands especially on that blank? If you check villain will most likely check back most worse hands.

      It's super important to bet very thin against stations! They will call with mostly anything.

      I am sure you are right about river!
      But i was just losing almost every single pot at this session which made me scared.
