      $0.25/$0.5 No-Limit Hold'em (4 handed)

      Known players:
      CO (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A, Q.
      Hero raises to $1.25, BU folds, SB calls $1.00, BB calls $0.75.

      Flop: ($3.75) A, 8, K (3 players)
      SB checks, BB bets $2.50, Hero calls $2.50, SB folds.

      Turn: ($8.75) Q (2 players)
      BB bets $7.00, Hero calls $7.00.

      River: ($22.75) 7 (2 players)
      BB bets $17.50, Hero ???.

      BB: Just 23 hands: 39/35 AF inf.
      SB: 24/16

      pre: Standard

      Flop: Call should be ok. r/c or r/r seems to be overplayed here, r/f is no option and SB will overcall sometimes.

      Turn/River: Can I fold here on any street? He is betting big twice and has a strong range, I think. 88 and Flushes are most obvious. Sometimes, but not often I think, he can show me A8 or K8...but I am behind against his valuerange. And complete spew is just a rare option, too. --->I cant downcall here?! Could I already fold the Turn (with my only 4 Outs against his valuerange)?

      I don't mind making a nitty fold on the River. IMO his Flop leading range is usually consisting of draws, and even though we have 2 pairs here we are going to be behind his river betting range the majority of the time.
