      UTG showed J A and won $12.89 ($6.31 net)
      Hero showed 7 7 and lost (-$6.58 net)

      I'm thinking of slow playing because villain is short and should barrel quite often. Turn should I have bet bigger? River I shove because I think there are many two pairs in his range that will call the shove.

      Hey Tommygecko,

      Slowplaying a dry flop with a guy to act behind you is a great option.

      I'd probably bet a little bigger on the turn since it's your last chance to extract value from any draws.

      Q is not the best river for you but your value shove is fine. You usually still have the best hand and worse will call.
