      Prima, $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      MP: $51.50 (103 bb)
      CO: $22.75 (45.5 bb)
      BTN: $50 (100 bb)
      SB: $60.10 (120.2 bb)

      Hero (UTG): $101.32 (202.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with Q Q
      Hero raises to $1.50, MP folds, CO calls $1.50, 3 folds

      Flop: ($3.75) 9 A 7 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $2.75, Hero calls $2.75

      Turn: ($9.25) A (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $4.50, Hero calls $4.50

      River: ($18.25) 5 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks

      Anon table.

      CO is a fish on small sample.

      My flop plan was to ch/call him down, I thougth his betting range in this spot could be much wider than his calldown range.
      Turn? It is a great card for me, so now I think chRAI turn would be better against his stack than ch/call. I lose to Ax anyway, and if I'm willing to ch/call any river, it's better to put in the rest of the stacks on the turn. Two flushdraws, some straightdraws out there, and I dont know if he is willing to bluff busted draws on the river or not...

      I don't agree with check/raising the Turn. You should realize that the fish CAN show up with ANY TWO CARDS. He doesn't necessarily bet here only with equity (9X, flush draws etc).

      Also, fishes like to attempt repping narrow ranges, especially the aggro ones. Even though the 2nd Ace coming out should be a card which improves your range, these aggro fish types will still continue trying to rep the trips and continue pot-betting.
