      PokerStars - $0.02 NL FAST (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BTN: $0.92
      SB: $0.99
      Hero (BB): $3.94
      UTG: $1.77
      MP: $2.87
      CO: $4.16

      SB posts SB $0.01, Hero posts BB $0.02

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.03) Hero has Q:heart: 5:spade:

      fold, fold, fold, BTN calls $0.02, fold, Hero checks

      Flop: ($0.05, 2 players) A:diamond: J:club: Q:diamond:
      Hero bets $0.05, BTN raises to $0.10, Hero calls $0.05

      Turn: ($0.25, 2 players) 5:club:
      Hero bets $0.16, BTN raises to $0.32, Hero raises to $1.06, BTN calls $0.48 and is all-in

      No sample on villain but we can assume something from stack size and limp from BTN.

      I think on turn it's okay to go broke if we hit our two pair because he can easily have plenty on Ax on his range that we beat, but not sure if played flop right.

      Hey Vilistaja,

      I think it's ok to not bet the flop here with your weak Qx. Your hand is usually not worth multiple streets of value and it's probably better to use it as a bluff-catcher on the flop. If opponent checks back you can think about going for thin value on the turn.

      When you do bet flop, I think you should be bet/folding.

      Turn play is ok since villain is shortstacked. Villains range is still going to have a lot of equity vs you though, so you are unlikely to make huge profits in this spot, but it will just about be profitable.
