      UTG - UTG ($3.58)
      UTG+1 - Hero ($11.04)
      UTG+2 - UTG+2 ($10.00)
      MP - MP ($11.16)

      SB - SB ($10.17)
      BB - BB ($10.10) vpip 12 prf 10 agg% 50 # 281

      Preflop: ($0.14, 9 players) Hero is UTG+1 with A:diamond: Q:spade:
      1 fold, Hero raises to $0.40, 6 folds, BB calls $0.30

      Flop: 6:club: Q:heart: 4:spade: ($0.84, 2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.60, BB raises to $1.52, Hero calls $0.92

      At this point I thought that he could have a weaker Q, or maybe 77-JJ, so I decided to call to re-evaluate on turn.

      Turn: 8:diamond: ($3.88, 2 players)
      BB bets $2.32, Hero calls $2.32

      I called here to keep the pot small and try to reach a cheap showdown.

      River: T:diamond: ($8.52, 2 players)
      BB bets $5.86 (all-in), 1 fold, Uncalled bet of $5.86 returned to BB

      Since he was a nit guy, I decided to fold. Maybe trips?

      He never has trips on his range on such board. But most likely it's set :D

      Seems reasonable to fold river. Dont think he fires so many streets as a bluff. Important stats here are fold to flop cbet and raise flop cbet and turn cbet and river cbet.

      I think u can just fold turn. There arent too many draws so i think villain is fairly nutted here.

      Also i would like to point out that AQ>KK/AA for bluff catching here due to blockers against QQ. However if u think villain is capable of flatting AA KK preflop and then checkraising and barreling kff with overpairs then i think AA is better for bluffcatching.
