      BTN: $1.29 (64.5 bb)
      SB: $2.48 (124 bb)
      BB: $1.96 (98 bb)
      UTG: $1.12 (56 bb)
      MP: $2.51 (125.5 bb)
      Hero (CO): $2.69 (134.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with Q J
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.06, BTN calls $0.06, 2 folds

      Flop: ($0.15) Q 4 2 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.08, BTN calls $0.08

      Turn: ($0.31) 8 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.18, BTN calls $0.18

      River: ($0.67) 2 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.22, Hero calls $0.22

      $1.11 pot ($0.04 rake)
      Final Board: Q 4 2 8 2
      BTN showed 9 J and lost (-$0.54 net)
      Hero showed Q J and won $1.07 ($0.53 net)

      Villain has played 100/0/0 over 5 hands with 0.2 AF

      Even though it's only 5 hands, together with his stack size I assume that he's a loose passive player.

      PF: Raised QJo for value vs BU and to steal vs blinds.

      Flop: I bet 1/2 pot for value.

      Turn: Again around 1/2 pot for value.

      River: I check to bluff catch vs him.

      On hindsight, I think I should have bet a little bigger on Flop/Turn maybe 60-70%. Should I have bet the River 1/2 pot?

      Hi Cheekopeh,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: We can cbet this flop/turn slightly higher and on the river, given he is unknown we can also valuebet small versus his 1p hands that would not fold.

      However his range does contain a lot of bluffs so looking to let him bluff is fine as well.
