      PokerStars - $0.10 NL - Holdem - 7 players

      MP: $10.75
      CO: $11.36
      BTN: $23.93 VP 20 / PFR 20 / ATS 46 / AF 3 (250 hands sample)
      SB: $10.05
      Hero (BB): $15.66
      UTG: $3.71
      UTG+1: $11.67

      SB posts SB $0.05, Hero posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.15) Hero has Q:spade: A:diamond:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, BTN raises to $0.25, fold, Hero raises to $0.80, BTN calls $0.55

      Flop: ($1.65, 2 players) 9:club: 6:club: 2:diamond:
      Hero bets $1.19, BTN calls $1.19

      Turn: ($4.03, 2 players) 4:diamond:
      Hero checks, BTN bets $1.90, Hero calls $1.90

      River: ($7.83, 2 players) 4:heart:
      Hero checks, BTN bets $8.70, fold

      BTN wins $7.48

      Preflop: standard, I suppose; having a 46 ATS, 3B with my AQo.
      Flop: standard also, I suppose; ragged disconnected board.
      Turn: the bet was so small relative to the pot I didn't think he was value betting but more like lightly trying to push me out, so I called thinking of shoving the river on any blank.
      River: when he overbets the river I REALLY thought he was running over me but could have 99 or 66 full... so I chickened out. :f_mad:

      PF: standard but you should know what to do vs a 4bet (shove or fold?) and also whether he is calling with a ton of worse. In some instances he may just be folding a really high % of the time vs 3bets, then 3betting AQ would be a waste.

      F: Betting flop on a semi-dry board seems standard

      T: Definitely a c/f. He has many pocketpairs and you may even be drawing dead vs 66/99. You can't even be sure whether your outs are clean on Ac/Qc/Qd rivers. If he bets 25% of the pot then maybe i consider c/c turn.
