      Hero raises to $1.50, CO folds, BTN calls $1.50, 2 folds

      Flop: ($3.75) 2 9 3 (2 players)

      Final Board: 2 9 3 Q 6
      Hero mucked 8 9 and lost (-$22.75 net)
      BTN showed Q A and won $44.17 ($21.42 net)

      Wanted to avoid a raise on the flop and to exploit the tendency to bet any 2 vs a check on this board.

      On the river I think his value range is not that big: 22-33, AQs/KQs so I decided to make the call

      I think it is standard b/c spot on the flop. I don´t mind your pot control, but if you don´t really c-bet for value top pairs/overpairs then he is going to bluffraise you a lot when you have air.
      Likely only 22/33 and sometimes 99 beat you, so you should feel comfortable b/c flop to then evaluate turn/river
      Consider his river bet I don´t think he is bluffing too often, but he may valuebet worse hands, so c/c down is fine.
      If you for example had that spot KK then c/rai seems quite interesting; since he likely has at best Qx.

      best regards,
