      UTG: $32.29 (64.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A:club: Q:heart:
      UTG calls $0.50, MP raises to $2.25, CO folds, BTN calls $2.25, SB folds, Hero raises to $8.50, UTG folds, MP calls $6.25, BTN calls $6.25

      Hero checks, MP bets $8.25, Hero calls $8.25

      River: ($62.75) Q:club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP bets $26 and is all-in, Hero calls $24.57 and is all-in

      MP is unknown
      BTN was looking like an aggressive fish over a small sample.

      Preflop i decided to squeeze for thin value vs MP and for value vs. the fish.

      I think the flop bet is fine.

      On the turn? He can have AK/AQ/ some combos of PP like TT-AA, probably ATs/AJ, but i`m not sure.
      I don`t think i can ch/f and shove seems to be a bit thin, so i decided to ch/c and shove the river if the turn goes ch/ch.
      This small bet is weird and i think calling is fine.

      On this river? Should i donk or ch/c is fine?

      Hey,

      I like preflop and flop. On the turn I'd ship it in and expect to get called by any Ax. I don't see much merit in c/c because I don't think he'll have pure floats in his range (ie KQ, 87s or whatever he called pf with), specially with BTN still to act on the flop. Mid pairs won't bet themselves but might call a shove and Ax will never fold but might not bet.

      Another nice line could be to underbet flop and turn and shove river, might make it harder for him to fold mid pairs.
