      Villain is completely unknown, only 4 hands but 50/0 so seems fishy. Better to check this flop maybe but I felt the need to prtect my hand here. I'm not exactly sure what villain has here. I figure I can't call here against an unknown, but not exactly sure what hand he has other than maybe a set or something like JJ-AA, maybe even some draw. No idea.

      Party, $0.01/$0.02 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      BB: $2.31 (115.5 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $2 (100 bb)
      MP: $2.18 (109 bb)
      CO: $0.46 (23 bb)
      UTG: $3.30 (165 bb)
      SB: $2.18 (109 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with Q Q
      UTG calls $0.02, MP folds, CO calls $0.02, Hero raises to $0.10, 2 folds, UTG calls $0.08, CO calls $0.08

      Flop: ($0.33) 2 3 T (3 players)
      UTG checks, CO checks, Hero bets $0.20, UTG raises to $3.20, 2 folds

      $0.73 pot ($0.03 rake)
      Final Board: 2 3 T
      Hero mucked Q Q and lost (-$0.30 net)
      CO mucked and lost (-$0.10 net)
      UTG mucked and won $0.70 ($0.40 net)

      Hi Knight,

      Preflop: looks fine.

      Flop: We shouldn't be results oriented and lean towards a check. In this spot we should valuebet and protection is a byproduct. First and foremost we want pure value from Tx, JJ, pairs and draws.

      I would also bet larger, closer to 0.25 or so.

      And I'd bet/fold without information here as well.
