      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is SB with A :club: Q :club:
      1 fold, MP raises to $0.30, 2 folds, Hero raises to $1, BB calls $0.90, 1 fold

      Flop: ($2.30) 9 :spade: 4 :club: Q :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.60, BB calls $1.60

      Turn: ($5.50) 5 :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.00, BB raises to $42.60, Hero calls $4.40 all in

      River: ($20.30) 6 :spade: (2 players - 1 is all in)

      I don't know much about bb, and i'm wondering if it's ok the bet on the turn. I know that calling the shove was a bad move but i had to put only 4$ in a 20$ pot.

      As I see it, i needed 20% eq to call.


      Board: 9:spade: 4:club: Q:diamond:  5:diamond:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      MP2    37.58%  27.58%  10.00% { AcQc }
      MP3    62.42%  52.42%  10.00% { QQ+, 99, 44, AQs, KQs, AQo, KQo }


      Is the range that I've assigned ok?

      Hi.

      We are probably committed here. I think u are a little pessimistic though, i think qq kk aa will 4b most of the time preflop so u should heavily discount those hands.

      Even without QQ+, I still have enough equity here. But would you bet the turn there after he calls the flop?

      You could go for check raise line:
      1) gives him chance to bluff if he did float with Ax hands

      If he checks back -> value bet river

      With x/r I will be the one to put all the money in; which is fine by me but I want to know it it's the correct decision. What hands could he play like this?

      I don't like check/raising Turns unless we have reasons to believe that villain is floating really wide on the Flop and betting when checked to on the Turn

      needs a lot Fold to Flop cbet
      board texture should be suitable for this - E.g. Q 9 7 has many straight and flush draws

      I have no reason to believe that AQ isn't the best hand on the Turn so I would bet Turn and push River.
