      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.60 by

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

      Flop: ($6,25) 7:club: , 2:heart: , 4:diamond: (3 players)
      BB checks, UTG bets $3,00, Hero calls $3,00, BB raises to $7,50, UTG folds, Hero calls $4,50.

      Turn: ($24,25) 2:club: (2 players)
      BB bets $6,00, Hero raises to $15,00, BB calls $9,00.

      River: ($54,25) 4:club: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks.

      Final Pot: $54,25

      Hero just called on the flop since he put UTG on TT+ or AK and wanted to decide on action of the flop depending on the flop texture. Since UTG bet the 3-way pot, it was likely that he had a pocket pair (TT+). On the given flop, the hero's equity against UTG is 50:50. So the best idea is to call down the UTG until the river, isn't it?

      Since BB minraised the flop, hero had to call. However, BB made a small bet on the turn so it was likely that hero had a best hand, wasn't it? It was unlikely that BB was on a draw on the turn, wasn't it (likely TP or overpair)?

      Did hero miss the value since he checked behind the river?

      Even against TT+/AK I think it is easier to play postflop if you 3-bet pf.
      You don´t want to give small pp/suited connectors correct odds and then loosing a lot of money postflop.
      Flop: calling flop is fine, since flop is very dry and if he has TT, JJ he´d likely bet again on the turn and maybe even river, I´d also call that small re-raise.
      Raising turn is fine and checking river is also good. Can´t really see which worse hand would call your shove on the river
