      No HUD and no reads on the villain.

      Party No-Limit Hold'em, $0.10 BB (4 handed) - Party Converter Tool from http://www.flopturnriver.com

      Hero (Button) ($22.09)
      SB ($11.65)
      BB ($7.19)
      UTG ($10.15)

      Preflop: Hero is Button with Q, 8
      1 fold, Hero bets $0.30, 1 fold, BB calls $0.20

      Flop: ($0.65) Q, A, 7 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.41, BB calls $0.41

      Turn: ($1.47) 2 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($1.47) 4 (2 players)
      BB bets $0.70, Hero calls $0.70

      How is my line here? Should I have bet the turn? Is my river call ever good?

      Hi Acetbfish,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Considering we have a draw to go with our Qx hand I don't mind the flop bet but it's thin because not a lot of worse hands can call there.

      As played I'd look at folding the river because of the bet size he uses (no reads) because he will have a lot of Ax that can bet like that and maybe even some better Qx. There are very few potential bluffs in his range there.

      Should we ever bet the turn? Can't we make him fold some Aces with bad kicker or some Qx hands?

      Based on his stack size it looks like he is on the recreational side.

      So I can't see anyone like him fold Ax on the turn. Maybe a Qx is folding but that turn is such a blank that I wouldn't make it my plan to get him to fold TP or 2nd pair.
