      Preflop: Hero is BTN with Q Q
      UTG calls $0.05, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.20, 2 folds, UTG calls $0.15

      Flop: ($0.47) 2 T 6 (2 players)

      UTG checks, Hero checks

      Results:
      $2.39 pot ($0.11 rake)
      Final Board: 2 T 6 4 6
      UTG showed 8 8 and lost (-$1.16 net)
      Hero mucked Q Q and won $2.28 ($1.12 net)


      Villain is unknown.

      PF: I isolate against UTG limper for value

      Flop: Bet for value. Against Tx, smaller PPs and even Ax.

      Turn: Doesn't change much and bet for same reasons as above.

      River: Here, it's getting a bit thin as Ax and smaller PPs most likely won't call another bet. If I bet less than 1/2 pot and get shoved on, I will probably call. Because if he has a stronger hand than mine he would have probably donked on the River to get the money in. But as I was thinking... Damn IPoker w their 10s rule so I auto-checked.

      Any comments on River?

      Hello,

      Preflop raising is fine and I'd make it at least pot size here.

      Bet bigger on the flop - $0.35.

      Your turn bet is good.

      I think we have an easy shove on the river considering he only has $2 left.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Hi Coach,

      I agree even if we bet more on the Flop, Tx hands and worse PPs hands will still call.

      But on River, is it a little thin to bet almost close to pot-size? Worse PPs most likely won't call and it sounds even too big for Tx to call. I can only think of JJ which might call but would have played differently?
