      Hero (SB): $10.59 (105.9 bb)
      BB: $10.49 (104.9 bb)
      UTG+1: $3.40 (34 bb)
      UTG+2: $13.41 (134.1 bb)
      MP1: $14.40 (144 bb)
      MP2: $10.14 (101.4 bb)
      MP3: $12.80 (128 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with Q K
      7 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, BB calls $0.20

      Flop: ($0.60) 4 Q T (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.30, BB raises to $0.90, Hero calls $0.60

      Turn: ($2.40) J (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $1.80, Hero calls $1.80

      River: ($6) 8 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $4.50, Hero calls $4.50

      $15 pot ($0.75 rake)
      Final Board: 4 Q T J 8
      Hero showed Q K and won $14.25 ($6.75 net)
      BB showed 6 A and lost (-$7.50 net)

      Villain is a reg (15/11/4 over 700+ hands) but seems to like defending his bb vs sb (against me at least a few times in this session). This was the second time in a row he raised my flop cbet. I decided to call to let him bluff of more chips. Turn wasn't the best card but I believe K9, AK and QJ are a very small part of his range(furthermore he might 3bet any AK for value) and I have all of them blocked. River is tough but I don't see many 9x in his tight PF range and I don't expect him to raise 99 on the flop ever. Also there are many missed FDs in his range, mainly Ax spades.

      Hi Tommy,

      Given that we bet half pot OOP on a drawy board we can't really fold. Our hand looks weak and villain can try to make us fold it.

      Next time we should just bet at least 45c. These small bet sizes will lose you value and get you in trouble with many hands.
