      I call with my QQ here....UTG range is allot tighter here and I can get SB in the pot this way too...

      I call the flop...dont feel like raising would achieve much since both called and I can get to know more about their range on the turn card...SB donks 64% on 11 occasions

      On the A turn I check behind...either Im way ahead or way behind...betting would get calls from aces only, maybe some straight draws...I think I have good showdown value

      Not a nice card to see on the river...I call the SB bet because it didnt feel like he had straight here...raising would only turn my hand into a bluff imo

      Hey Lavek,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I think that we can actually raise that flop to isolate the fish (ideally) and maximize value from pairs. We don't need to raise much but 1.5 would work wonders.

      As played I doubt either would have many Ax hands so we can even bet/fold turn.
