      Hero (MP3): $22.97 (229.7 bb)
      CO: $10 (100 bb)
      BTN: $7.69 (76.9 bb)
      SB: $21.96 (219.6 bb)
      BB: $4 (40 bb)
      UTG+2: $10.15 (101.5 bb)
      MP1: $14.45 (144.5 bb)

      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.40, 2 folds, SB calls $0.35, BB folds

      Flop: ($0.90) 3 Q 4 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($0.90) Q (2 players)
      SB bets $0.40, Hero calls $0.40

      River: ($1.70) 9 (2 players)
      SB bets $1, Hero raises to $4.60, SB raises to $8.20, Hero raises to $22.17 and is all-in, SB calls $12.96 and is all-in

      $44.02 pot ($1.50 rake)
      Final Board: 3 Q 4 Q 9
      Hero showed A K and lost (-$21.96 net)
      SB showed 4 4 and won $42.52 ($20.56 net)

      Is this just a cooler? Should I shove on the river? I just always seem to run into coolers when we're both >100BB deep and it's put me deeper into a downswing now :( so I'm wondering if I played it wrong, or if there was any way to get away?

      The guy was 62/11 over 50 hands which is what made me really sick, why do I pay off the fishes every time D:!

      flop and turn - played fine

      river - i dont mind the raise to get worse flush to call but when he re-raises its usually a strong flush or a full house so i wouldnt raise over, i would just call his raise.
