      CO: $1.85 (92.5 bb)
      BTN: $2.12 (106 bb)
      SB: $2.57 (128.5 bb)
      BB: $2.02 (101 bb)
      Hero (MP): $2.12 (106 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with J A
      Hero raises to $0.08, CO folds, BTN calls $0.08, 2 folds

      Flop: ($0.19) Q Q A (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.12, BTN calls $0.12

      Turn: ($0.43) 2 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.08, Hero calls $0.08

      River: ($0.59) 7 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.20, BTN raises to $0.40, Hero folds

      Aw...was I drunk? :f_rolleyes: Was it even me playing at all?

      The villains is slightly fishy.

      I should have barreled the turn, right? (bet/fold)

      On the river, as played, it's a call, yep?

      I don't know why, but I apparently I imagined that he is slowplaying a queen. It seems stupid now. Plus he cannot have a stronger ace, because AK would 3bet here.

      So the line is bet/bet/bet, fold on a big raise?

      at first imo yes on these limits they showup when then are strong so bet for value until that if he likes to bluff u could let him barrel but need some reads there

      Hi German,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: should be bet/bet/bet (smaller side) vs fish guy and fold to a raise at any point as long as you don't bet to induce like your river bet was.

      As played, I don't understand your line :)

      I'm assuming we were trying to let him bet random floats?

      But he may not have any floats on that board so I'd bet about 1/2-2/3 on turn, and same on river.

      Thanks for your reply, mate.

      Sounds like you're having good time on the Christmas day too :f_biggrin: (or you just don't like commas per se)

      I don't think that we can slowplay AJ here being OOP, so maybe we need to barrel the turn even if he's aggressive. As played, that's not the bluff we were looking for, so raising these ridiculous 8 cents is what I should have done.

      Hi Bogdan,

      Even I myself don't understand my line! As I wasn't actually drunk, tired is the only thing that comes to my mind :f_zZz:

      Even though the hand was played horribly wrong, at least I got it right when analyzing the session.

      Thanks, guys.
