      Hand recorder for this hand: SideKick 1.1.417.4

      Preflop: Hero is BB with Q:spade: , Q:diamond:
      SB posts small blind ($0.01), Hero posts big blind ($0.02), UTG3 folds, MP1 raises for $0.06, MP2 3-bets $0.10, 4 folds, Hero 4-bets $0.28, MP1 calls, MP2 calls

      Flop: ($0.91 - 45.50 bb) 8:club: , 7:club: , 2:diamond: (3 Players)
      Hero bets $0.60, MP1 calls, MP2 folds

      Turn: ($2.11 - 105.50 bb) K:club: (2 Players)
      Hero checks, MP1 bets $1.02, Hero folds, MP1 gets uncalled back ($1.02)


      MP1 is an 18/12 reg (386 hands).
      MP2 was a fish.

      Preflop: 4bet for value as 3bet was very low. In retrospect should have made a bigger ($0.35) 4bet as I'm OoP.

      Flop: Cbet should be bigger ($0.75)
      Turn: I don't want to see a K or an A. On this turn I just c/f as I'm probably behind MP1 calling range and don't have much outs to improve (no FD).

      Preflop: What can we put MP1 on here? His range should be somewhat strong here. He's 18/12 which is on the looser side for regs, but I'm not sure how loose the average loose NL2 FR reg defends when you cold 4b over a fish's 3bet. Maybe he's defending looser when the fish is also involved and the 4b size is kind of small since the 3b size was a <2X 3bet.

      I think he should be defending something like 99-QQ, AQ, AK. I think he would push preflop with AA and KK.

      Flop: when MP calls, his range looks like 99-QQ, maybe he floats with AK but I'm not too sure, and A:cK and A:cQ. He shouldn't have too many suited hands IMO.

      Turn: C/F is the most reasonable play if
      A. We don't expect him to call with worse on this card which looks really scary for 99-JJ after the King improves AK and the club improves club flush draws.
      B. We don't expect him to turn worse made hands into bluffs - i.e. He doesn't bet 99-JJ here when checked to.

      Now here I'm really not sure whether those 2 assumptions are true or not. I think A is probably true, but sometimes you'll be surprised to see some really bad players shove JJ here for protection when checked to.

      I think c/c and c/f are kind of close and really depends on whether assumption B is fulfilled or not.
