      Preflop: Hero is BB with A 7
      UTG raises to $0.10, 4 folds, Hero calls $0.05

      Flop: ($0.22) 9 9 Q (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG checks

      Turn: ($0.22) J (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG bets $0.10, Hero calls $0.10

      River: ($0.42) 3 (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG bets $0.75, Hero raises to $5.63 and is all-in, UTG folds

      Preflop:
      called his small raise utg, as he was opening way to much, and bluffing many streets, but was properly a mistake, because I don't know what to do if I did not hit the flop...

      Flop:
      I checked with the idea of calling a bet, as he bluffs oftent.

      Turn:
      as he checked I was thinking now he is trying to induce...
      I called for implied odds as I think this villain would bet any river especially if a flush gets there...

      River:
      I check and he instantly overbets, I thought he could have trips maybe Jx Qx two pair maybe KT...
      Anyways He bluffs so oftent I still think I'm ahead of his range, but thought after I shoved that only hand this guy will call with is Q9, J9... he's maybe not as stupid as I gave him credit for in the start :P
      Maybe I should have made a smaller bet to get him to call, but thought he was a bit more fishy, and wanted to extract most value possible.

      Hello,

      Preflop I don't mind calling.

      On the flop checking with the intention to check/call is fine.

      On the turn I don't really have much against checking here as well. Board is connected and there aren't too much hands that we can make fold.
      Calling against his bet is good.

      On the river I think check/shoving is fine.
      Once he overbets I think he is either too strong or just bluffing, and I think that shoving to maximize our value against his better part of the range.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Apparently, 3-betting is fine as well?

      Why exactly we`re not X/R here? Because the board is paired and rather wet?

      What if the flop is Q92tt? Or Q72tt?

      Are we X/R and folding on the first flop and going broke on the second?

      Preflop I would prefer calling rather than 3betting against a potentially fishy guy.

      On the flop I think check/raising probably won't be the best option against an unknown fish, since we are not sure how often he will fold Qx or so.
