      IPoker, $0.01/$0.02 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 5 Players

      Hero (SB): $2.06 (103 bb)
      BB: $2.35 (117.5 bb)

      MP: $0.92 (46 bb)
      CO: $1.20 (60 bb)

      BTN: $2.25 (112.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with Q T
      MP folds, CO calls $0.02, BTN folds, Hero raises to $0.10, BB calls $0.08, CO folds

      Flop: ($0.22) A Q Q (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.12, BB raises to $0.24, Hero calls $0.12

      Turn: ($0.70) 9 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $0.35, Hero calls $0.35

      River: ($1.40) 6 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks

      Preflop: I don't like to play OOP yet, but CO is loose and passive so I think it's OK to iso him. 4BB+1BB per limper is my standard raise.
      Flop: Things went somewhat wrong as I have to play vs aggro BB instead of passive CO, but at least I flopped a good hand. My standard Cbet on paired board is 1/2 pot. When BB check/minraised me I know he either selling me a story that he has Q or he has Q. Problem is he could be on KQ/QJ and have me dominated. He also could be on Ax, draw, PP or even a pure bluff is not excluded based on his stats. Because of his aggressiveness, I decided I'll just check/call all the way.
      Turn: Bed card for me, but I'm still in X/C mode.
      River: Even worse card. I think I can't even X/C any more?

      Hi Oly,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Why are we betting so small on this flop? We should bet at least 18c and since villain is aggro we should not play it passive on the flop.

      Simply raise it and go with the hand as plenty worse can raise us on the flop.
