      MP2: $45 (90 bb)
      CO: $96.73 (193.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with A Q
      Hero raises to $1.75, MP2 calls $1.75, 3 folds

      Flop: ($4) 6 Q A (2 players)
      Hero bets $3, MP2 calls $3

      Hero bets $7.50, MP2 calls $7.50

      River: ($25) Q (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 checks

      $25 pot ($1.25 rake)
      Final Board: 6 Q A 4 Q
      Hero showed A Q and won $23.75 ($11.50 net)
      MP2 mucked and lost (-$12.25 net)

      I think I only lose value from AJs/ATs while I have a chance of catchin a bluff from him or to stack KQ/QJs.

      On the river, what about betting something that Ax would call and something that might induce a bluff, like around $5-$10?

      I dont think the q is something that helps his range. I rather bet out myself.

      If lets say hes a reckless fish and river was an ace, now i would cr the river cos i would expect the fish to value bet w any trip w weak kicker when his absolute hand strength improved. Then a cr would make more sense (and u can also induce from busted draws).

      Now u are mostly inducing from busted draws anyway but u let all AX check back river and u lose a ton of value.

      I want u to count combos. He has hardly any QX in his range (he probably folds turn a lot) and u block a Q as well.
