      PartyGaming - $0.10 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      MP: $1.85
      CO: $10.00
      BTN: $14.21
      Hero (SB): $10.36
      BB: $10.00
      UTG: $9.38 22/0 - 50 hands

      Hero posts SB $0.05, BB posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero has A:club: J:club:

      UTG calls $0.10, MP calls $0.10, CO calls $0.10, fold, Hero raises to $0.70, fold, UTG calls $0.60, fold, fold

      Flop: ($1.70, 2 players) 4:spade: 9:club: J:heart:
      Hero bets $0.90, UTG calls $0.90

      Turn: ($3.50, 2 players) A:heart:
      Hero bets $1.80, UTG calls $1.80

      River: ($7.10, 2 players) Q:heart:
      Hero bets $2.70, UTG calls $2.70

      To isolate weak cards from all limpers I make a large raise.
      Get a call from UTG.
      By flopping TPTK I make a Cbet to get value from most of his range where A high cards would dominate.

      When called my bet I still fell dominating.
      Turn improves my hands and I go for another Cbet to get value from all of his range.

      River is not that nice but still I dominate most of his range except flushes, straight - that make a small part of his range. Now quite likely is that he has some two pair or AX hand.
      So river bet is not a shove that might scare him away, but less than a half.

      Hey ilioas,

      Preflop is fine.

      In general you bet small-ish postflop. However given the board texture and the fact that the pot is already a little bloated, I like this play.

      I think your value bets are good and I like that fact that you went for some thin value on a scary river.

      Given the above circumstances if opponent would shove - It would be fine to go along?

      At that point I would have to call 3.28 and my Equity would need to be 17% which I think I do have at that point against his 2 pair holdings, KQ, QT

      I think it's very unlikely villain will shove a worse 2-pair on the river. Most of the time you will be up against a flush, sometimes a straight or slowplayed set.

      Standard option at 10nl would be to just assume you don't have that 17% equity and make a tight fold. Villain dependent of course.
