      showed and lostHero mucked Q Q and won $2.31 ($1.09 net)
      MP showed 6 6 and lost (-$1.22 net)

      Villain is a huge fish, 72/30 over 52 hands.

      I figured my QQ would be pretty good here on the flop pretty often. Sure he can have an A, but I also think this guy is capable of betting a lot of random stuff he decided to call with. I figured by checking, I could let him bluff with worse hands, whereas I probably couldn't really get a whole lot of value by betting myself.

      I'm not sure whether or not I should have value bet the river...

      Hi TinoLaan,

      Preflop: Fish love to call 4-bets and they rarely shove so I would prefer a larger 4-bet, even to as much as 60-70c so we can set up for a flop shove.

      Postflop: As played i would ship the river. Only KK is better than us as played.
