      Hero wins 81.45 BB


      BB 450 hands VPiP 17, PFR 13

      BU fish, 4 hands 100 VPiP


      I didnt want to bet bet bet with so weak kicker. I wanted to bluff catch if BU bets, or to bet bet turn and river.
      Is river ok to check call even if he shoves? Fish usually plays draws like that.

      Usually you want a specific reason to open QTs UTG, ideally fish in the blinds etc.

      I'd probably cbet the flop. I get what you are saying about not wanting to betbetbet, but perhaps it is better to bluff-catch on a later street rather than risk letting two opponents see a free card if BTN checks back.

      BB range gets exposed as very weak when he just flat calls 1bb, so I think your raise is good.

      Turn is a blank, BTN likely has a worse hand. Good spot for value bet imo.

      River check is good. Unless villain is a huuuge station and will call you with pair of 6's or 8's, there isn't much that is calling. His range is mainly busted draws. For that reason you could consider check/call larger river bet. It depends on how passive villain is, he could have 79 after all.
