      SB: $2.32 (116 bb)
      BB: $3.65 (182.5 bb)
      Hero (UTG): $2.68 (134 bb)
      MP: $1.38 (69 bb)
      CO: $2.95 (147.5 bb)
      BTN: $2.21 (110.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with Q A
      Hero raises to $0.08, 2 folds, BTN calls $0.08, 2 folds

      Flop: ($0.19) Q J A (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.14, BTN calls $0.14

      Turn: ($0.47) 7 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.36, BTN calls $0.36

      River: ($1.19) 3 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.68, BTN raises to $1.63 and is all-in, Hero calls $0.95

      BU is fishy. I think I should have protected my hand better on the flop.

      Can I fold to the river raise? I need to have 22% equity for a call here. His line doesn't looke like weaker 2P though. It looks clearly like a FD, so maybe we could fold...

      Hi German,

      Unless you overbet flop or turn you can't really get all that money in and protect your hand better.

      I think you played it fine except on the river. Im assuming you sized your bet like that so you can bet/fold but yet you didn't? Or were you trying to induce?

      Hi Bogdan,

      Oh...you asked a very good question. You are right, here I sized it so we kinda can bet/fold, but I didn't :f_biggrin: That's what I don't like the most in this hand as well.

      But it made me think...if the river was blank, I would not overbet it as well...because I would be afraid that weaker aces might not call me anymore. On the other hand, if he calls river at all, he might call a shove too. So would we shove a dry river with such 2P instead of making it ~60% the pot?

      TY

      PS: As played, bet/fold would be fine, yup?

      Yes, as played bet/fold is fine.

      On a blank river I'm shoving all day long, it's very hard to assume villain will fold TP when everything missed.
