      BB: $2.40 (48 bb)
      UTG: $0.31 (6.2 bb)
      MP: $6.61 (132.2 bb)
      CO: $1.66 (33.2 bb)
      BTN: $3.17 (63.4 bb)
      Hero (SB): $10.11 (202.2 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with Q J
      3 folds, BTN raises to $0.12, Hero calls $0.10, BB folds

      Flop: ($0.29) 6 K 5 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.17, Hero calls $0.17

      Turn: ($0.63) 5 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.47, Hero calls $0.47

      River: ($1.57) 9 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.75, Hero calls $0.75

      Wasn't sure about calling the river. Ace hearts beats me, King is on the board and i hold QJ of hearts. The river bet looked weak so i thought it could be AK but thats pretty much the only hand i beat

      Preflop: This could be a 3bet. Calling in the SB is not good because BB can either squeeze or call and both situations are unfavourable for you. Calling is fine if BB is tight though.

      Flop: I think both c/c and c/r are acceptable. I would c/r on Turns which give me the backdoor straight draw as well.

      Turn: I do think you should c/r here and shove the River. This is way too weak. You are up against a bad player after all who would often call down with any top pair.
