      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero has Q:spade: K:heart:

      UTG calls $0.02, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.12, UTG calls $0.10

      Flop: ($0.25, 2 players) Q:diamond: 7:club: 8:spade:
      Hero bets $0.20, UTG calls $0.20

      River: ($1.77, 2 players) 2:club:
      Hero bets $0.84, UTG calls $0.39 and is all-in

      Hero shows Q:spade: K:heart: (One Pair, Queens) (Pre 43%, Flop 88%, Turn 86%)
      UTG shows T:club: T:diamond: (One Pair, Tens) (Pre 57%, Flop 12%, Turn 14%)
      Hero wins $2.46

      Vs. 1 limper from UTG, I iso-raise, and just kept barreling.

      Preflop and flop I think are ok. After that, I'm not sure. Check/call turn?

      Hey feverfew,

      Hand looks ok. It's probably one of the weakest hands you are likely to get 3 streets of value with, but your opponent could easily raise a lot of his better hands on the turn.

      I would probably bet smaller on the turn. You encourage calls from worse pairs in your opponents range. If your opponent folds a hand like QT here, this is terrible. In order for this value bet to be profitable you really need to ensure you are getting value from Jx, 99,TT any straight-draws and any flush-draws.

      Given opponent has so little left he may not realise he is pricing himself in for a call on a lot of rivers etc. As played you can never fold river with $0.39 effective stacks behind ofc.
