      Never really know how to play for unraised pots. Villain is 67/7 fish.

      I bet since I hit, and get called, and called again on the turn. I can't really give this guy any kind of range :/

      I get pretty much min-raised on the river and after some head scratching end up calling. I figure his range his so huge that he could be raising here with a weaker queen, maybe a jack pair, maybe even a busted draw. Not really sure how to deal with people with such huge ranges.

      Party, $0.01/$0.02 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 8 Players

      Hero (BB): $2.65 (132.5 bb)
      SB: $2 (100 bb)
      BTN: $2.24 (112 bb)
      MP1: $2.99 (149.5 bb)
      UTG+2: $2.77 (138.5 bb)
      MP2: $2.27 (113.5 bb)
      MP3: $0.86 (43 bb)
      CO: $2.28 (114 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 9 Q
      UTG+2 folds, MP1 calls $0.02, MP2 folds, MP3 calls $0.02, CO calls $0.02, 2 folds, Hero checks

      Flop: ($0.09) J 5 Q (4 players)
      Hero bets $0.04, 2 folds, CO calls $0.04

      Turn: ($0.17) 7 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.11, CO calls $0.11

      River: ($0.39) T (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.25, CO raises to $0.56, Hero calls $0.31

      $1.51 pot ($0.07 rake)
      Final Board: J 5 Q 7 T
      Hero showed 9 Q and won $1.44 ($0.71 net)
      CO showed Q 6 and lost (-$0.73 net)

      Hi Knyght,

      Preflop: looks fine. can't really raise 3 limpers

      Flop: I'd bet more than 40% of the pot here for value/protection

      Turn: Bet is fine, i'd still bet larger though

      River: His range is wide, all draws missed (except AK/89) so I would probably bet/call small (around the same bet you made).

      VS these guys, in limped pots its harder to hand read because they are generally looser. So he can even have a 5x that he turns into a bluff on the river or valueraing a weak Q because we bet small 3 streets (like he did here).
