      PartyGaming - $0.10 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      SB: $10.15
      Hero (BB): $10.00
      UTG: $13.71
      MP: $3.91
      CO: $10.74 32/22 - 1362 hands WTSD - 19% River AFq 45%
      BTN: $10.62

      SB posts SB $0.05, Hero posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero has J:heart: Q:diamond:

      fold, fold, CO raises to $0.30, fold, fold, Hero calls $0.20

      Flop: ($0.65, 2 players) 3:spade: J:spade: 5:heart:
      Hero checks, CO bets $0.62, Hero raises to $1.24, CO calls $0.62

      Turn: ($3.13, 2 players) 6:diamond:
      Hero checks, CO checks

      River: ($3.13, 2 players) K:spade:
      Hero checks, CO bets $7.20, fold

      Villain steals 40% from late so I call with QJo from BB.

      Villain has been fairly aggressive earlier so I did not want to get stack against him oop. So I check flop.

      By minraising of course my story does not tell anything. I should have just called down unless spade comes out.

      River overbet is really wierd - what could that mean?

      Hi.

      Flop: Without a good gameplan, I don't think the Flop check/raise is a good idea. You need to have some expectations on how villain would react. I also prefer it in SB vs BB or BB vs BU since ranges would tend to be wider in those situations.

      So I would just take the default c/c line and hope to get to showdown.

      Turn: Ok I think the turn check is fine, I don't think QJ is strong enough to fire multiple streets.

      River: Check again, and if you have no idea what to do, just call the top part of your range and fold the bottom of your range. I don't think QJo (especially withotu a ) is close to the top of your range so this is a pretty easy fold. You'll need villain to be floating you on the Flop with pure air here. I'm not sure whether he is capable of bluffing or only overbets the nuts but I don't think you should ever be playing guessing games here.

      Thanks.
