      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.60 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is CO with Q:spade: , Q:heart:
      5 folds, Hero raises to $2,00, 2 folds, BB calls $1,50.

      Flop: ($4,25) 6:spade: , 2:diamond: , A:diamond: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $2,00, BB raises to $9,50, Hero folds.


      Fold To Flop % = 35 so that's why I betted 1/2.
      Should I call this RRaise ?

      bet half and fold to reraise, that looks like a solid play to me.
      Only thoughts is with a weaker/non-commiting bet he might try to bluff you off the hand as opposed to folding to a stronger bet. Hard to put him on a hand, his mid-high VPIP and low RP/AF screams loose-passive fish, and they normally only bet when they have a hand, and simply call while trying to make a hand.
      With QQ you only have one more scare card and you do have position... my question would be, do you ever check to the turn in this position? 39 hands is not alot for accurate stats.

      its good to bet less on A high boards for (hopefully) obvious reasons

      after his raise you need to fold especially without the backdoor flush draw

      Can I also do this?
      Flop: C-bet 2/3 / Call Reraise
      Turn: Push if a Q or lower comes not of diamonds

      or

      Flop: Push directly

      Although I am not a fan of pushing, I am reconsidering my first option instead of the 1/2 c-bet.
      But as the way i see it, Villain will only call with 1) Ax or 2) FD (and 3) Set))

      if he reraises you he has yuo beat in ..lets say..90% of the time

      so be happy that you can still fold

      of course you also should bet AK here with only 1/2 potsize

      1/2pot is IMO the minimum. I probably would have made a $2,50 bet here and fold after a reraise.
