      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.04 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      BU (Hero):
      $6.32
      SB:
      $5.42
      BB:
      $7.05
      MP2:
      $14.03
      MP3:
      $8.47
      CO:
      $5.04


      Preflop: Hero is BU with Q, Q.
      MP2 folds, MP3 raises to $0.12, CO folds, Hero raises to $0.36, 2 folds, MP3 calls $0.24.

      Flop: ($0.78) 2, 2, J (2 players)
      MP3 checks, Hero bets $0.50, MP3 calls $0.50.

      Turn: ($1.78) K (2 players)
      MP3 checks, Hero checks.

      River: ($1.78) 8 (2 players)
      MP3 bets $1.16, Hero folds, MP3 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.78.

      Is there a reason to cbet this flop? Nothing worse calls, and nothing better folds. On the river we beat nothing, so an easy fold?

      Hey Adsefghijk,

      You need to be able to justify a 3bet with QQ vs MP open. Villain needs a wide range and a low Ft3bet. If either of these is not true, or you have no info, you should flat QQ vs EP open.

      I would cbet the flop - depending on how wide villain calls he may have PPs, Jx, flush-draws. If you think value is thin, bet smaller.

      I don't mind betting again on turn very small for value. Maybe $0.80 or so. Jx/FD's/PP may still call + you often buy yourself a showdown or make an easy fold vs a turn check-raise. Nothing too wrong with your line however.

      On the river you still beat diamond draws, but with no reads that opponent is capable of bluffing I would just assume he is not at these stakes and fold.
