      UTG: $5.82 (291 bb)
      MP: $5.16 (258 bb)
      CO: $2.22 (111 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $2 (100 bb)
      SB: $2.05 (102.5 bb)
      BB: $4.35 (217.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with Q A
      UTG calls $0.02, MP folds, CO calls $0.02, Hero raises to $0.06, SB folds, BB raises to $0.18, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, BB calls $0.12

      I didnt want to to call a 3bet with AQo wanted to 4bet/fold

      Flop: ($0.65) T 3 Q (2 players)
      BB bets $0.70, Hero raises to $1.70 and is all-in, BB calls $1

      Rarely can I put him on AA/KK. ( he called my 4 bet) AK/AQ/QQ are possible
      I have noticed that sets are slow played and Flush draws donk bets so I decided to go broke here.

      Turn: ($4.05) T (2 players, 1 is all-in)
      River: ($4.05) 4 (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      $4.05 pot ($0.14 rake)
      Final Board: T 3 Q T 4
      Hero showed Q A and won $3.91 ($1.91 net)
      BB showed A 8 and lost (-$2 net)

      Hi Saren,

      Preflop: Since we have two limpers in the pot we should make our isolation raise bigger. I would make it here at least 0.10.

      Since we raised so small we are inducing lighter 3-bets because our hand looks weaker.

      Why do we min 4-bet the opponent here? Are you doing it for value or as a bluff?

      I would recommend 4-betting to a proper size of about 20-24 BBs. 4-betting so small will get you called/shoved on almost every time.

      Postflop: As played I agree that his hand doesn't look that strong when he pots that flop. It may look like a draw or a weak Qx/pair looking for protection.

      So shoving is best there.
