      BTN: $8.99 (179.8 bb)
      SB: $1.95 (39 bb)
      Hero (BB): $5 (100 bb)
      MP: $4.71 (94.2 bb)
      CO: $4.54 (90.8 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with Q Q
      MP folds, CO raises to $0.15, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.60, CO calls $0.45

      Flop: ($1.22) 9 J 4 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.70, CO calls $0.70

      Turn: ($2.62) 6 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.30, CO calls $1.30

      River: ($5.22) Q (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $1.94, Hero calls $1.94

      $9.10 pot ($0.38 rake)
      Final Board: 9 J 4 6 Q
      Hero showed Q Q and won $8.72 ($4.18 net)
      CO showed A Q and lost (-$4.54 net)

      Opponent is 46/28; 1,6AF, nice sample

      Is my line correct? Betsizing due to pot size? Should I have maybe considered betting more on flop and shoving turn?

      How about, as played, betting out on turn? Is he likely to call a 2/5 pot bet with worse in this spot?

      What if that was just a single raised pot? Is pot-pot-shove a profitable line against a huge fish like this?

      This looks like an easy bet bet bet spot. I don't know why you are checking the River here. You are just letting him get away with KJ/AJ/JT and you are just paying off flushes here. Just shove and hope to get called by worse.

      This is known as a "negative freeroll", which is never a good thing.
