      CO: $26.47 (105.9 bb)
      BTN: $25.98 (103.9 bb)
      SB: $33.13 (132.5 bb)
      BB: $27.45 (109.8 bb)
      UTG: $34.49 (138 bb)
      Hero (MP): $28.66 (114.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with Q K
      UTG raises to $0.75, Hero calls $0.75, 2 folds, SB calls $0.65, BB folds

      Flop: ($2.50) 5 8 T (3 players)
      SB checks, UTG bets $2, Hero calls $2, SB folds

      Turn: ($6.50) 5 (2 players)
      UTG bets $5.25, Hero calls $5.25

      River: ($17) J (2 players)
      UTG checks, Hero bets $8.25, UTG raises to $26.49, Hero folds

      SB: 64/18, fold to cbet 43, wtsd 33

      I usually raise on the flop with sets/flushes, but this time I wanted to keep the fish in, and let UTG bet overpairs, and maybe flushdraws. On the turn I think there is no point to raise. What do you think about the river? I guess we have a valuebet against QQ+, but after he check/raises I thought I'm always behind, fold?

      I prefer raising flop usually because of the SPR and there are quite a few bad cards for you. You have all board pairing cards and any spade, plus 9 and 7 might scare some good pairs as well. With lower SPR you can slowplay more imo.

      As played, bet river a bit bigger. An overpair is still quite a decent hand so it will call a 10-11 bet as well.
