      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.4 BB) Hero has 2:heart: Q:club:

      Flop: (5 BB, 2 players) 2:diamond: Q:spade: A:heart:
      SB checks, Hero bets 3.6 BB, SB calls 3.6 BB

      Turn: (12.2 BB, 2 players) Q:diamond:
      SB bets 5 BB, Hero raises to 16.8 BB, SB calls 11.8 BB

      River: (45.8 BB, 2 players) K:heart:
      SB bets 23 BB, Hero requests TIME, Hero raises to 109.92 BB and is all-in, SB calls 46.08 BB and is all-in

      sb was hiding from search, but i thought it was worth it on the turn to check out how many tables he was playing and it was 1 table only. :P

      i actually nearly timed out on the river (short timebank) trying to count combos to figure out if there was value in a raise. :f_biggrin:
      seems like it's pretty close, depending on how many Qx (and maybe other random hands) we give him?

      Board: 2:diamond: Q:spade: A:heart:  Q:diamond:  K:heart:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      BU     50.00%  50.00%   0.00% { Qc2h }
      SB     50.00%  50.00%   0.00% { 22, AQs, KQs, QTs+, AQo, KQo, QJo }

      this is probably a bit conservative so in average there should be enough value i guess, if we add all QTo it's already 60/40, he might have random Q9s Qxs Qxo too in which case it's already not close at all.

      maybe he thought i was slowrolling him, nah just thought i legitimately was in a not that easy spot and daily runbad didn't let me think clearly :D

      Hey Tomaloc,

      I think river raise is fine here.

      If villain is a fish he can also have a collection of suited Qx and TJo/TJs. Maybe even misplayed Ax. It's a spot where you will always be beat some of the time but should have over 50% equity vs calling range and can value-raise.

      Sizings look fine - texture is reasonably dry throughout. Although vs a suspected fish there is always an argument for raising bigger for value I guess.
