      CO: $111.33 - VPIP: 18, PFR: 14, 3B: 4, AF: 1,8, Hands: 211

      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is BTN with Q :heart: A :diamond:
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.75, Hero calls $0.75, 2 folds

      Flop: ($1.85) 9 :diamond: T :heart: J :spade: (2 players)
      CO bets $1.00, Hero calls $1

      Turn: ($3.85) K :spade: (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero bets $2.50, CO calls $2.50

      River: ($8.85) J :diamond: (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero bets $4.50, CO raises to $24, Hero calls $19.50

      My intention was to keep him in the hand on the turn to get value from two pairs and get max value from his Qx range on the river by shoving.

      The board paired and usually I check back these spots, not sure why I bet/call there.

      Hey,

      I think your turn bet should be bigger. It's a drawy board, you can bet about 3 and expect quite a few calls or raises. His range will be quite inelastic, air folds to whatever you bet.

      On the river I think you should bet slightly bigger, Qx never folds anyway and when he raises you have a fold ofc against his range. It's always a hand like JJ, JTs, TT, KK that made a fullhouse imo.
