      BTN: $2.57 (51.4 bb)
      SB: $11.38 (227.6 bb)
      BB: $4.76 (95.2 bb)
      UTG: $5.19 (103.8 bb)
      Hero (MP): $5 (100 bb)
      CO: $2.37 (47.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with Q A
      UTG raises to $0.15, Hero calls $0.15, 4 folds

      Flop: ($0.37) 2 Q 9 (2 players)
      UTG bets $0.26, Hero calls $0.26

      Turn: ($0.89) A (2 players)
      UTG bets $0.62, Hero raises to $2.10, UTG raises to $4.78 and is all-in, Hero calls $2.49 and is all-in

      River: ($10.07) 4 (2 players, 2 are all-in)

      $10.07 pot ($0.42 rake)
      Final Board: 2 Q 9 A 4
      UTG showed Q Q and won $9.65 ($4.65 net)
      Hero showed Q A and lost (-$5 net)

      UTG - ( $5.19 USD ) - VPIP: 15, PFR: 13, 3B: 3, AF: 4.0, Hands: 80

      PF: I just flat UTG's open here. Should I fold this since he's so tight?

      Flop: Don't see any value in raising here, only vs Flush draws he has.

      Turn: Superb card for me, I decided to raise/call.

      But thinking about it, if he was so tight, I don't think he will call me w worse here other than AQ/AK and 2ps/sets?

      This raise is good for sure. So many draws to gain value from and he may put u on a draw yourself and not fold AK AJ etc. You absolutely have to raise here.

      Flatting pre is fine, you keep his range a bit wider and you can sometimes take the pot down with your position.

      Post-flop was just bad luck on turn. What would you have done there, if the turn was like 6 :club: ?
