      Prima, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      BTN: $16.33 (163.3 bb)
      Hero (SB): $10 (100 bb)
      BB: $20.82 (208.2 bb)
      UTG: $8.44 (84.4 bb)
      MP: $13.88 (138.8 bb)
      CO: $20.66 (206.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with Q A
      3 folds, BTN raises to $0.20, Hero calls $0.15, BB calls $0.10

      Flop: ($0.60) 9 8 A (3 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks, BTN checks

      Turn: ($0.60) 4 (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.40, BB raises to $0.80, BTN folds, Hero calls $0.40

      The opponent was rather loose. I decided to call cause the raise size was a bit small and I was prepared to call a not too big river bet. Raising here would be overplaying and I think my hand was good enough to not fold.

      I think he might be raising with 2 pair+ or weaker top pairs.


      River: ($2.20) K (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $2.20, Hero folds

      His pot sized bet on the river made me lean toywards him having a stronger range like 89, A9, A8 or a set or even a made flush that he could have been semi bluffing with on the turn.

      Hello,

      I prefer 3betting preflop.

      You could lead on the flop here. There are worse hands that could call you.

      On the turn betting is fine.
      When he minraises what river cards are you planing to call?
      In general I think folding is best, since I don't think he would raise here worse hands.

      Folding river is fine.

      Best,
      Plamen
