      PokerStars - $0.05 NL (6 max) ZOOM - Holdem - 6 players

      Opponent unknown

      Hero (BTN): $5.94
      SB: $4.58
      BB: $9.89
      UTG: $5.69
      MP: $6.10
      CO: $2.11

      SB posts SB $0.02, BB posts BB $0.05

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero has Q:club: Q:diamond:

      fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.15, SB raises to $0.35, fold, Hero calls $0.20

      I decide just to call here as I saw people 3b stuff like 74, 98s and so on and they play pretty tight vs 4bets so I see more value in just calling.

      Flop: ($0.75, 2 players) 4:heart: 9:diamond: 6:club:
      SB bets $0.35, Hero calls $0.35

      My idea with call is not to fold his weak PPs and to allow him barreling on J+, mayhap even T but his sizing is small so I could consider raising.

      Turn: ($1.45, 2 players) 8:spade:
      SB checks, Hero bets $1.20, SB calls $1.20

      Bet big to be AI on the river and make him pay.

      River: ($3.85, 2 players) 9:heart:
      SB checks, Hero bets $2.68, fold

      Hero wins $3.69

      Preflop: I would much prefer 4betting here. If they are folding a lot vs 4bets, then you should be abusing them with many 4bet bluffs.

      Important stats for this spot: Fold to 4bet. The higher the number, the more you should be incentivized to slowplay. vs a 50% or less FT4b, you should not really slowplay too often. And QQ is usually a hand which is not too great for slowplaying as 1/3 of the deck will bring an Ace or King, but at the same time it's usually strong enough to play for stacks in late position. I prefer having AA/KK to slowplay instead.

      I think the rest of the hand looks fine to me. Call when he bets, and bet when checked to.
