      Hero (CO): $5 (100 bb)
      BTN: $9.08 (181.6 bb)
      SB: $3.98 (79.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with Q Q
      UTG folds, MP raises to $0.20, Hero calls $0.20, 3 folds

      Flop: ($0.47) K 9 3 (2 players)
      MP bets $0.23, Hero calls $0.23

      Turn: ($0.93) T (2 players)
      MP checks, Hero checks

      River: ($0.93) 5 (2 players)
      MP bets $0.69, Hero calls $0.69

      Results:
      $2.31 pot ($0.11 rake)
      Final Board: K 9 3 T 5
      MP showed A J and lost (-$1.12 net)
      Hero mucked Q Q and won $2.20 ($1.08 net)


      PF: I can 3-bet for value against a "look-liked" recreational player. However, decided to call IP instead and keep his entire range in.

      Flop: I call his 1/2 pot which doesn't really mean much. His range is still very wide.

      Turn: X/X

      River: I call his 2/3 bet to bluff catch.

      On revision, I really have no idea why I played the hand like this. ?(

      As played, I probably should have bet Turn to protect my hand and seize the initiative for a free/cheap showdown.

      Hello,

      Preflop I will 3bet here all the time.

      On the flop my plan will be to call once and then give up on the turn if he bets.

      When he checks on the turn, I prefer to bet here. We will be happy to take the pot, also want to take some value from worse hands.
      Also by betting turn we can take a free SD and don't get to call a river bet.

      As played, facing the river bet sucks but I think calling is fine.

      Best,
      Plamen
