      Flop: ($27.50) A 7 4 (3 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks, BTN checks

      Turn: ($27.50) 5 (3 players)
      Hero bets $16, CO calls $16, BTN calls $2.50 and is all-in

      River: ($62) 5 (3 players, 1 is all-in)
      Hero checks, CO bets $18, Hero calls $18


      I squeeze preflop for value. What if he 4bets-can I play QQ for stacks for 200BB againt this guy?
      Should I cbet this flop? I think he could have lots of Ax in his range.
      I plan to b/f turn.
      What's the best play in the river? Should I bet again?
      if he bets 2/3 pot / pot here once I check, I doubt that he is turning 88-JJ into a bluff. How do interpret his small bet? I need only 18% equity but can I expect to ever be ahead here?

      I would probably bet the turn a bit smaller. It's true that they are unlikely to have an ace given that the flop got checked through, but a big bet doesn't accomplish much. Bet like 12 on the turn and they might actually call with worse hands!

      As played on the river I would just check/fold. I know it hurts given pot odds etc, but we're just ahead here soooo seldom it doesn't matter that we have good odds. So just fold the river.
