      Hero (BTN): $5.40 (108 bb)
      SB: $6.63 (132.6 bb)
      BB: $5.67 (113.4 bb)
      UTG: $9.49 (189.8 bb)
      MP: $11.64 (232.8 bb)
      CO: $6.77 (135.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with J Q
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.15, SB calls $0.13, BB folds

      Flop: ($0.35) Q J 6 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.25, SB calls $0.25

      Turn: ($0.85) 3 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.65, SB raises to $2.75, Hero folds

      $2.15 pot ($0.09 rake)
      Final Board: Q J 6 3
      Hero mucked J Q and lost (-$1.05 net)
      SB mucked and won $2.06 ($1.01 net)

      SB - $6.63 (USD) - VPIP: 60, PFR: 40, 3B: 0, AF: 3.0, Hands: 10

      Firstly, I timed out on this hand and auto-mucked while I was deciding =\

      Turn: I'm essentially going all in here. But the dry flop sort of puts me off a little. He might have a KT draw, AQhh draw or AQ which he is playing this way. I also block JJ set & QQ set if he chose not to 3-bet PF. Leaves me w 66 & 33. Since it's also NL5, I'd leaned more towards a call.

      Hi Cheekopeh,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Board is somewhat connected and I think we can add 1 BB to our bet.

      Given that we have top two pair and villain can have worse 2p hands I can't see how we can fold. With AQ it's an easier fold but not so with top 2 pairs.

      We can simply call there and call river, or even 3-bet and go with the hand.
