      SB: $0.97 (48.5 bb)

      Hero (CO): $3.25 (162.5 bb)
      BTN: $1.57 (78.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with Q Q
      MP raises to $0.07, Hero calls $0.07, BTN calls $0.07, SB folds, BB calls $0.05

      Flop: ($0.29) 3 3 2 (4 players)

      $3.67 pot ($0.24 rake)
      Final Board: 3 3 2 6 J
      MP showed 2 2 and won $3.43 ($1.67 net)
      Hero mucked Q Q and lost (-$1.76 net)

      Villain is 20/18 over 131 hands.
      BU and BB are both super loose fish.

      I decided to call in position pre. I think I would have preferred a 3bet for value though.

      Can we raise either the flop or turn for value here? Or is calling down best?

      On the river, looking back at it, I think a fold might have been better. There's really not anything worse he's betting here most of the time, unless he has some random AJ, which I think is pretty unlikely.

      Though I think he can easily bet smaller pairs on the flop and turn, I'm pretty sure he'll just check those on the river. So I'm basically always looking at AA, KK, JJ, 66, 22 or 33 here...

      So in hindsight, I think this is a fold.

      Tough to lay down overpairs at NL2 on such dry boards though...

      Hi TinoLaan,

      Preflop: 3-bet would be much better especially with fish behind that could cold call. You can even make it smaller to keep them in

      Postflop: As played we underplayed our hand big time so we can even raise the flop. As played I don't you will get bluffed often on the river and that J makes it such that no worse can valuebet so I agree that as nitty as it looks it's a fold.
