      villain is 19/15/5 AF:1.8 cbet:32, cb turn: 2/2

      i think its pretty obv he has a Q here, so i can go for a small valueraise ott and small-ish vbet otr vs KQ/QJ/QT ???

      thing is, if i call the turn i looks like a Q always and im never getting more then 2 bets out of his weaker Qx, but if i raise, it looks pretty weird and might not believe or smthg and ill get 3 bets this way...

      should i raise bigger ott or bet bigger otr?
      or just call turn call river?

      I think it's kind of thin but acceptable. Note that you are not really repping much. You can't rep any turned two-pair and you probably just bet a set on the Flop.

      The same probably applies to him unless he somehow is capable of slowplaying. I kind of like the play to be frank. A 6$ river bet is fine. It looks bluffier and we just get more value anyway. I don't think the additional 2$ will have a huge impact on his calling frequency.
