      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.15) Hero has Q:club: Q:spade:

      fold, Hero raises to 3 BB, fold, BTN calls 3 BB, fold, fold

      Flop: ($0.75, 2 players) J:spade: K:spade: 7:diamond:
      Hero bets 4 BB, BTN calls 4 BB

      Turn: ($1.55, 2 players) 6:club:
      Hero bets 8 BB, BTN calls 8 BB

      River: ($3.15, 2 players) 4:spade:
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      Hero shows Q:club: Q:spade: (One Pair, Queens) (Pre 72%, Flop 81%, Turn 89%)
      BTN mucks T:spade: A:diamond: (High Card, Ace) (Pre 28%, Flop 19%, Turn 11%)
      Hero wins 30 BB


      I am wondering if beting on flop is ok? I hope gutshot draws are calling, and Jx are calling, and flush draws. So there are many more hands which are weaker calling. Is it ok check/call on river?

      Hi mlatasrb,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Flop: I'm assuming villain is somewhat unknown? If so I don't mind bet/folding there for thin value/protection.

      As played I'd most likely ck/fold the river versus unknown. All draws except the few QT draws have gotten there and he can still vbet a Kx hand.

      He was unknown.
      You are right, no reason to call river, because only missed gutshot bet, and with Kx which he doenst have often in calling range mostly he checks behind.
