      Full Tilt, $0.10/$0.25 No Limit Hold'em Cash, Rush, 6 Players

      BB: $16.54 (66.2 bb)
      UTG: $10 (40 bb)
      MP: $56.32 (225.3 bb) unknown
      Hero (CO): $56.76 (227 bb)
      BTN: $25 (100 bb)
      SB: $25.35 (101.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A Q
      UTG folds, MP raises to $0.75, Hero calls $0.75, 3 folds

      Flop: ($1.85) 6 T 2 (2 players)
      MP bets $1, Hero calls $1

      Turn: ($3.85) 7 (2 players)
      MP bets $1, Hero raises to $4.20, MP calls $3.20

      River: ($12.25) Q (2 players)
      MP checks, Hero bets $4.30, MP calls $4.30

      $20.85 pot ($1.04 rake)
      Final Board: 6 T 2 7 Q
      MP mucked Q Q and lost (-$10.25 net)
      Hero showed A Q and won $19.81 ($9.56 net)

      Pre: standard
      Flop: happy to peel for the given odds, with overcards + backdoor. (Better to raise? I guess that if I just call on this flop, I can't rely on hitting and I need to make some moves on the turn in order to play the hand profitably.)
      Turn: he looks weak again and I picked up outs to the nuts, so I raise to try to fold out AK or weak pairs. (Do enough better hands fold, or should I just call for the pot odds?)
      River: Bet size ok? Didn't think I could get much more.

      Hi Member,

      I don't mind raising the flop there and apply pressure to his weaker pair range. We could expect his stronger range to bet bigger. And we have many turns we can continue on.

      Floating though is fine as well as we will be able to pick up this pot from him on the turn often.

      As played, do you plan to bet the river if we miss? His range looks like a pair type hand (possibly Tx/JJ) that it's trying to see a cheaper river (and thus may be scared). So I like our raise as long as we plan to fire river as well.
