      BB wins $0.92

      I open up my Q2s from SB to take the blinds, he is likely to call and fold on the flop

      I bet the flop to get him to fold, A is most likely to hit my open range and also I was on a flush draw so I had some equity here

      Q on the turn is a good card for me to barrel again if he was chasing a low straight or had some weaker hands that he wanted to float with

      He calls again and I just quit on the river even though his bet is smaller I think I was probably against Ax

      Hey HrabriLavek,

      Stealing preflop here is fine vs a high Ftsteal. Opening to steal on flop SBvsBB is not always the greatest option even vs a player with high fold to cbet. The dynamics are different here and you will get called on the flop with a much higher frequency (unless you have specific reads that it is not the case). Often a better SB strategy will be to c/f or fire 2.

      Given you flop a flush draw, cbetting is fine, and you should look to barrel most turns. When Qx hits it's fine to barrel. Not technically a pure semi-bluff anymore since worse may call. You could legitimately think about turning your hand into a bluffcatcher + strong draw.

      You get a great price on river, folding is likely fine though.
