      Hi erptech,

      Welcome to the nl forum.

      I´d make it 2$ pre-flop and once you c/r, you should make it 7$.
      If you´d bet out with QQ players tend to call light @ 6-max and you can get enough value postflop. Once BU isolated, make bigger re-raise to get value for worse hands.
      On the flop I´d make it 7$ to get value for flushdraws, and would c/c turn or b/f. Don´t really like to overshove pot, since no worse hand would call me and once I get raised it is very unlikely that he is bluffing.

      Good luck at the tables,

      I would like to ask you if bet-fold is better EV on the river then check-call? In my opinion they are of the same value.

      Bet-fold: +bet.and.get.called.by.weaker.pair.or.even.ace.high-bet.and.get.raised.so.you.have.to.fold(this contaisn both raises with weaker hand(bluff)(low equity) or getting raised with stronger hand(higher equity)+blockbet.and.get.called.by.better.hand(very unlikely)-blockbet.and.get.a.fold.with.weak.hand.that.would.have.chance.to.make.a.bluff.if.checked.to

      Check-call: +calling.a.bluff(likely)-calling.with.weaker.hand(likely as well)+check.check.situation.loosing.to.a.better.hand(very unlikely)

      Can you please leave your thoughts about it? These 2 moves are difficult to compare in numbers I think but I have a sense that check-calling is better EV here.
