      Poker Stars, $0.08/$0.16 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 5 Players

      BB: $16 (100 bb)
      MP: $20.36 (127.3 bb)
      CO: $23.87 (149.2 bb) VPIP: 38, PFR: 24, 3B: 12, AF: 6,5, Hands: 105
      Hero (BTN): $28 (175 bb)
      SB: $16 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with K Q
      MP folds, CO raises to $0.48, Hero calls $0.48, SB folds, BB raises to $2.30, CO calls $1.82, Hero calls $1.82

      Flop: ($6.98) Q 2 8 (3 players)
      BB checks, CO bets $3.77, Hero calls $3.77, BB calls $3.77

      Turn: ($18.29) 6 (3 players)
      BB checks, CO checks, Hero checks

      River: ($18.29) 4 (3 players)
      BB checks, CO checks, Hero checks

      I didnt have hands on BB when the hand was played.

      Preflop: Should i get involved here? I like my call IP. I plan to play the hand with pair or some draws. If i face serious confrontation i wont have problems letting it go. Plus i like the situation that we are deeper with CO.

      Flop: We flop pretty nice. I think i have to call here at least one street. We can reevaluate later on. Once squeezer checks the flop i think he is quite weak here, right? When CO leads out what range should i give him? I dont see overpairs in his range here, because he would 4bet with them most likely. AQ at best i think. More likely some pocket pairs like TT-JJ? What about Ax?

      Turn: BB check/called flop and now checks again. I dont know what to think here. His line is a bit weird. Either he has 2nd type pair hand or he is getting really tricky here. I like that turn brings flush draw here which gives us more equity in case we are behind. Given that they both checked i should bet here? I think i made a mistake checking it behind, because it might be last street where i can get value. (Bad card might appear on river.) What sizing should i use?

      River: We see that they are weak. Given that i made mistake on turn can we do something there?

      Hello,

      I think this is a spot where we can 3bet preflop for value. Villain looks quite loose so he is probably going to call more than a normal opponent plus we are deeper.
      When BB raises I think calling is reasonable. If our hand was offsuit I'd fold.

      Calling the flop is fine.
      I think CO's range consists worse Qx, probably some pocket pairs as well and I think he could bluff here as well.

      I would just shove the turn. The card improves our equity plus when they both check we are usually having the best hand here.

      As played, I would shove the river for value.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Shove 18$ into 18$ pot? Whats gonna call us? BB got 10$ - lets say its 1/2 pot size bet.

      I think shoving is better here to try to maximize our value against CO.

      If he calls around $10-$12 bucks with a hand like Qx here I do expect him to call a shove as well.
