      No particular stats on the villain but he seemed kinda bad.

      Dealt to Hero K:heart: Q:spade:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, SB raises to $0.30, Hero calls $0.20

      Hey Acetbfish,

      I think this hand is fine.

      Raising flop doesn't make a lot of sense when the board is so dry. Better to let villain barrel with worse.

      Turn/River raises aren't completely out of the question, since you likely have the best hand. Villain just needs to be bad enough to call a raise with worse. You could easily raise the river to $2.20 and play raise/fold if you think villain is bad enough to pay you off with any pair.

      With limited information about villain I think you played this hand in the best way.
