      CO: $6.52 (130.4 bb)
      BTN: $8.46 (169.2 bb)
      SB: $5.02 (100.4 bb)
      Hero (BB): $5 (100 bb)
      MP1: $1.95 (39 bb)
      MP2: $3.46 (69.2 bb)
      MP3: $6.87 (137.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with Q Q
      MP1 folds, MP2 calls $0.05, 3 folds, SB completes, Hero raises to $0.30, MP2 calls $0.25, SB folds

      Flop: ($0.65) 9 Q A (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.45, MP2 raises to $0.90, Hero calls $0.45

      Turn: ($2.45) 5 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 checks

      River: ($2.45) K (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.30, MP2 folds

      $2.45 pot ($0.10 rake)
      Final Board: 9 Q A 5 K
      Hero mucked Q Q and won $2.35 ($1.15 net)
      MP2 mucked and lost (-$1.20 net)

      UTG+1 is Lose Pasive over 20 hands, I think I played this hand correctly when I was raised on the Flop I thought calling would be the right play because he only has less than a PSB left.

      On the River after Turn I am not really sure what he has but I am hopeing that he is never Folding an Ace here and calls?

      Preflop is fine.

      On the flop I like your bet.
      When he raises I would rather go broke here. I doubt he bluffs a lot here so I prefer putting the money in.
      I wouldn't say that calling is bad at all, since even if he checks back the turn we still have less than pot size bet left but the board is quite connected and we don't really want to give him free cards.

      As played, shoving the river is good.
