      Stacks:
      hero (UTG) ($25.16) 126bb
      UTG+1 ($20) 100bb
      CO ($24.36) 122bb
      BTN ($17.92) 90bb
      SB ($20.70) 104bb
      BB ($20.30) 102bb

      Pre-Flop: ($0.30, 6 players) hero is UTG Q K
      hero raises to $0.70, UTG+1 calls $0.70, 1 fold, BTN calls $0.70, 1 fold, BB calls $0.50

      Flop: T 6 Q ($2.90, 4 players)
      BB checks, hero bets $2.20, 2 folds, BB calls $2.20

      I should have bet pot.

      Turn: 3 ($7.30, 2 players)
      BB checks, hero bets $4.40, BB calls $4.40

      Was not sure if i should check since a flush from BB is the most likely hand or just check behind.
      If i check it's hard to call a bet from a rather unkown tight opponent so i bet turn for free showdown.

      River: 5 ($16.10, 2 players)
      BB bets $7.80, hero folds

      Final Pot: $16.10

      Hi.

      Flop:

      "We should have bet pot"

      I highly disagree with this.
      1) 4way dynamic - Anyone continuing in this hand has top pair or a flush draw or OESD at the very least
      2) This guy is a nit - He has AQ here so often, and he has way fewer speculative hands in his range so fewer draws.

      Betting large just isolates you vs the top part of your opponent's range. In fact the pot is already so huge when 4 people came along, being twice as large as a regular Headsup pot. You don't need to bet so much to build the pot for later streets. I would argue for a 60% pot bet.

      Turn: The Turn bet here is not good at all. We do not have any value vs villain. At this point in time I would just check and give up on the River. We only beat KJs at this point in time which is just such a small part of villain's range. We lose to AQ and flushes now.

      Thanks.
