      Prima, $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      BTN: $53.87 (107.7 bb)

      Hero (MP): $80 (160 bb)
      CO: $149.05 (298.1 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with Q K
      UTG folds, Hero raises to $1.50, CO calls $1.50, 3 folds

      Flop: ($3.75) K 9 Q (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.75, CO raises to $7.25, Hero raises to $13.25, CO raises to $147.53, Hero calls $65.25 and is all-in

      Turn: ($160.75) 4 (2 players, 1 is all-in)
      River: ($160.75) 7 (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      $160.75 pot ($3 rake)
      Final Board: K 9 Q 4 7
      Hero showed Q K and lost (-$80 net)
      CO showed J T and won $157.75 ($77.75 net)


      There was still low 2 pair or some draw so I chose shove even deep stack.

      Even against this villain, should I call his c/r and play turn?

      I think versus such player we can't escape. And also check-calling flop will get us in a tough spot again on any turn. So for us its just better to save initiative and make some fishy min-reraise. I thik you've played it well.
      Versus regular check-calling is much better.

      how aggressive has he been over your sample? i would expect him to be a passive fish and not raise 2p, and raise only slowplayed QQ KK or straight. and the deeper stacks further makes his range even tighter towards the nutted straight here so i actually prefer folding to his jam, or calling his raise to draw for the full house.
