      Hi, Malcolm,

      Weird hand.

      Why do we cold-call preflop OOP in the first place? QT is an ugly hand to call with, especially OOP. I would just fold it.

      Why do you think that you are behind CO on the river? He would c-bet anything of value on the flop, and the chances of him having pocket queens are rather miserable. People can open all the trash from CO, Like J8o f.e.

      You raise is totally fine to me, and yup, we cannot fold anymore, even if you wished to :)

      Regards,

      German

      Hello,

      I prefer folding preflop. Our hand does not play good since it is offsuit and we are in a "sandwich".

      On the flop checking is fine.

      Calling turn is kind of close but considering he might bet weaker made hands or draws calling might be a good option.
      What are you doing if another ace hits the river and he bets?

      On the river I really don't like raising.
      I don't expect a worse hand to call, also we have a player behind.
      When he shoves I think we have to fold since I really don't expect him to shove with a worse hand.

      Best,
      Plamen
