      BB: 172.95 BB
      UTG: 379.55 BB
      Hero (MP): 109.05 BB
      CO: 106 BB
      BTN: 145.85 BB
      SB: 40.5 BB

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has Q:club: Q:spade:

      fold, Hero raises to 3 BB, fold, BTN calls 3 BB, fold, fold

      Flop: (7.5 BB, 2 players) 7:heart: 8:diamond: 8:club:
      Hero bets 5 BB, BTN raises to 10 BB, Hero calls 5 BB

      Turn: (27.5 BB, 2 players) K:spade:
      Hero checks, BTN bets 15 BB, Hero calls 15 BB

      River: (57.5 BB, 2 players) 7:club:
      Hero checks, BTN bets 20 BB, Hero calls 20 BB

      Hero mucks Q:club: Q:spade: (Two Pair, Queens and Eights) (Pre 81%, Flop 0%, Turn 0%)
      BTN shows 8:heart: 8:spade: (Four of a Kind, Eights) (Pre 19%, Flop 100%, Turn 100%)
      BTN wins 92.65 BB

      770 hands, 24/19, 3bet 6. fcbet 48%. raise cbet on flop 19% (4/21)

      I call his min raise, because it is standard board to raise IP, I guess, and his raise cbet 19% seems high, altough on small sample, but it is additional info.
      Turn is a classic scare card so I call again, and river I think I should just fold, because his small size bet tells that he doesnt want me to fold. I called because I had good odds, but Actually I think I am almost always behind against this bet size.
      So overall I would play the same, only I would fold river. If he would bet large or shove I would call.

      Hi mla,

      Preflop: looks fine

      POstflop: I agree with your analysis.

      I think that flop and turn are "standard" and should be a call because he can even raise 99-JJ on the flop and then b et 1/2 on the turn.

      But on the river I doubt that he valuebets thin those 99-JJ, especially after the 7 pairs the board, so we should just muck our hand.
