      IPoker, $0.02/$0.04 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 5 Players

      SB: $4.96 (124 bb)
      BB: $5.23 (130.8 bb)
      Hero (MP): $9.58 (239.5 bb)
      CO: $2.75 (68.8 bb)
      BTN: $9.53 (238.2 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with Q A
      Hero raises to $0.12, 2 folds, SB calls $0.10, BB folds

      Flop: ($0.28) J 3 T (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks
      I really disliked this flop.
      It hits villains pre-flop flatting range well, and my top pair outs complete equally likely straights.

      The same could be said the other way though -- it hit s pre-flop raisers range well enough, and beats all the lower pairs.

      CBet or not?

      Turn: ($0.28) K (2 players)
      SB bets $0.28, Hero raises to $1.12, SB raises to $4.84 and is all-in, Hero calls $3.72
      I really, really love this turn. However, I was pretty sure I had a split pot, but just in case I have something worse beat...

      River: ($9.96) Q (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      $9.96 pot ($0.66 rake)
      Final Board: J 3 T K Q
      SB showed J T and lost (-$4.96 net)
      Hero mucked Q A and won $9.30 ($4.34 net)

      Flop: With 2 overs and a gutshot you should cbet here. But you should give up with your non-straight draws and underpairs like 88.

      Turn: Agree with raising here, we need to build the pot, and his bet size indicates massive strength.
