      UTG: 158.6 BB (VPIP: 16.00, PFR: 14.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 54)
      Hero (MP): 193.4 BB

      SB posts SB 0.4 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.4 BB) Hero has Q:diamond: A:diamond:

      UTG raises to 3 BB, Hero raises to 9 BB, fold, fold, fold, fold, UTG calls 6 BB

      Flop: (19.4 BB, 2 players) A:spade: K:club: 5:heart:
      UTG checks, Hero bets 10 BB, UTG calls 10 BB

      Turn: (39.4 BB, 2 players) 8:spade:
      UTG checks, Hero checks

      River: (39.4 BB, 2 players) A:heart:
      UTG bets 139.6 BB, Hero ?

      Should have continued to bet on turn also, but for some reason checked there. I guess was involved in big hands at other tables and speed poker has no timebank. Villain shoves the river for >100bb into 40bb pot. Can I call there?

      Preflop: I don't really like the 3bet here. He seems tight from UTG and thus by 3betting here you are largely isolating yourself vs stronger hands.

      Flop: I think you have to bet slightly larger on the Flop

      Turn: This is close, checking and betting are both acceptable but I would not fire three streets.

      River: Here you are pretty much at the top of your range so gametheory wise you should call this. At the same time I'm not too sure how often this guy bluffs.

      This is a really tough spot. I think it could be a fold. Could be AK/55 going for max value but at the same time your range could be perceived to be capped. Honestly I'm not too sure about this but you can't go wrong with calling a hand as strong as AQ.

      What makes me want to fold is the fact that he seems nitty over a small sample.
