      Prima, $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 5 Players

      MP: $27.75 (55.5 bb)
      CO: $50.25 (100.5 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $56.80 (113.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with Q 5
      2 folds, Hero raises to $1, SB folds, BB calls $0.50

      Flop: ($2.25) 7 4 Q (2 players)
      BB bets $2.25, Hero calls $2.25

      Turn: ($6.75) 8 (2 players)
      BB bets $4, Hero calls $4

      River: ($14.75) A (2 players)
      BB bets $9, Hero calls $9

      Anon table.

      BB was unknown at the time.

      Flop/turn are standard call I guess.
      River? Ace seemed scary at first, but it drastically narrows his valuerange. I dont think he would valuebet many Qx anymore (maybe KQ/QJ, but I'm not sure, it would be quite thin from him), so I think it's OK to bluffcatch for the odds given.

      He got there with 56s, 78, Q7, AQ, A7, A4, backdoor spades. None of the draws actually bust. While it narrows his value range, I still think he has a very wide nutted range. And we are close to the bottom of our value range. I think I would prefer folding here.

      Maybe if we had something like a flush blocker with a higher kicker, then calling is better here. Maybe something like KsQx or JsQx.
