      SB: $50.10 (100.2 bb)
      BB: $50.50 (101 bb)
      Hero (UTG): $121.42 (242.8 bb)
      MP: $52.57 (105.1 bb)
      CO: $55 (110 bb)
      BTN: $61.46 (122.9 bb)

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

      Flop: ($3.75) 7 Q 9 (2 players)
      Hero bets $3, CO calls $3

      Turn: ($9.75) 4 (2 players)
      Hero bets $7.75, CO calls $7.75

      River: ($25.25) 6 (2 players)
      Hero bets $16.75, CO raises to $42.75 and is all-in, Hero folds

      $58.75 pot ($2.50 rake)
      Final Board: 7 Q 9 4 6
      Hero mucked A A and lost (-$29 net)
      CO mucked and won $56.25 ($27.25 net)

      Even though I think his stats are crazy I sticked to my initial plan of bet/folding the river. I think he can easily have random 2p here and even though he is the son of a maniac I don't think he is bluffing here all that much.

      b/f generally is fine. Even maniacs would mostly not bluffshove turns if you have raised pre-flop and bet strong every street.

      What you can do is bet 8$ on the turn and overbet shove river. If he is going to call you down with Qx then you get maximum value and you don´t have to worry b/f best hand

      best regards,
