      SB: $2.09 (104.5 bb)
      BB: $1.58 (79 bb)
      MP: $2.72 (136 bb)
      CO: $1.83 (91.5 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $2 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with Q Q
      MP raises to $0.06, CO folds, Hero raises to $0.18, 2 folds, MP calls $0.12

      Flop: ($0.39) 4 6 T (2 players)
      MP checks, Hero bets $0.26, MP calls $0.26

      Turn: ($0.91) A (2 players)
      MP checks, Hero checks

      River: ($0.91) J (2 players)
      MP bets $0.52, Hero folds

      The villain is a rock. When I saw an ace, I realized that it's all over. When even a jack showed up, I couldn't think of a single hand in his range that I beat.

      ...maybe it even will the first hand, where I will be told "gh" :f_rolleyes: oh I'm so excited :f_biggrin:

      The only thing that disappoints me, is that you might say "barrel the turn!", and it won't be "a gh" anymore :f_cry:

      Well, we could make kings fold with a barrel...or pay more to Ax. As I generally expect him to have Ax more often than kings, I decided not to barrel.

      I am not so sure everything ends with A on board. You can still make 0.5$ bet and then play check behind river. This is just mine opininon and i hope coach will say gh to you:)

      Hi German,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: flop looks fine.

      The rest looks good too, I'd say GH if villain is indeed a rock. However I can see him having more sets than Ax hands unless he likes calling preflop/flop with AQ/AK which not many do.

      On the river the only hands we beat are bluffs like 77-99 but most rocks don't bluff those hands, so again nice fold.
