      Prima, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 5 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      BB: $19.10 (191 bb)
      MP: $21.58 (215.8 bb)
      CO: $5.86 (58.6 bb)
      BTN: $13.14 (131.4 bb) Unknown, played just 3 hands.
      Hero (SB): $10 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with Q Q
      2 folds, BTN raises to $0.30, Hero raises to $0.95, BB folds, BTN calls $0.65

      Flop: ($2) 4 2 2 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.10, BTN calls $1.10

      Turn: ($4.20) 6 (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.50, BTN calls $2.50

      River: ($9.20) 3 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      On the river I was really in a dilemma here. he could have called down with a flush draw, he could have a 5 for a straight, he could even have an overpair. I thought I miht not get paid by overpairs here most of the time and anything calling here would be straight+. Any bet here would almost commit me.

      I actually thought of check/folding here cause I don't think a lot of overpairs also will bet river.

      Hi Mahee,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Flop/turn: looks fine

      River: I recommend counting combinations on the river. Against unknown I prefer to just bet the river and I expect to get called by over pairs such as 88-JJ maybe even 77.

      Ok,

      hands that beat me
      AKs -1
      AQs -1
      I think it'll be hard for him to call me with A5s or 56s preflop. Still I can add 8 combos for them totaling 10 combos.

      88-JJ, 24 combos.

      So yeah bet river and call a shove.

      Or just shove that river. We only have $5.5 behind in a $9 pot.
