      Party, $0.02/$0.04 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      CO: $6.62 (165.5 bb)
      Hero (UTG): $11.41 (285.3 bb)
      BTN: $3.64 (91 bb)
      MP: $3.92 (98 bb)
      SB: $8.97 (224.3 bb)
      BB: $5 (125 bb) 24/18/0/1.3 34 hands

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with Q Q
      Hero raises to $0.12, MP calls $0.12, 3 folds, BB calls $0.08

      Flop: ($0.38) 7 T 6 (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.27, MP folds, BB calls $0.27

      Turn: ($0.92) J (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.66, BB calls $0.66

      River: ($2.24) 5 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      I decided against a further bet due to the possibility that I was being slowplayed by a made straight or a set. OTOH, I can easily bet a call from AJ, AT.

      $2.24 pot ($0.11 rake)
      Final Board: 7 T 6 J 5
      Hero showed Q Q and won $2.13 ($1.08 net)
      BB showed 9 A and lost (-$1.05 net)

      I can see him having a lot of Ax hands in his range, and AT, KT fit his play well, but so does 89

      2 Questions:
      Bet sizing on Flop & Turn

      Should I have bet the river for value?
      If so , how much?

      Hi Elchipriota,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Flop: Board is somewhat connected so a 2/3 pot bet is fine

      Turn: Turn kills some of our action but he can still call some 88, 99, T9, Tx and backdoors. He may have a rare AJ as well.

      River: It's a blank, nothing really got there so there's still a chance we can get called by worse so I'd bet 1/2 pot or so and we still have enough behind that we can fold to a shove.
