      Party Poker
      No Limit Holdem Ring game

      10 players

      CO: $3.66
      Button: $28.10
      SB: $5.32
      BB: $29.30

      Pre-flop: (10 players) Hero is MP2 with Q A
      3 folds, MP1 (poster) checks, Hero raises to $1.25, MP3 folds, CO calls, Button calls, 3 folds.

      Flop: A J Q ($4.35, 3 players)
      Hero bets $3.5, CO folds, Button calls.

      Turn: J ($11.35, 2 players)
      Hero bets $8, Button calls.

      River: 6 ($27.35, 2 players)
      Hero checks, Button bets $11.25, Hero ?!?!?.

      Villain is something like 12/2. I'm definately beat right here on river and not winning anything like 30% of the time eh? How are my bet sizes? Anything else important that can be mentioned about this hand?

      Please let me know anything else i did wrong of course, I haven't Bigstacked very much before but i figure NL25 could be a good place to start. I opened up some NL10 tables at first, but it just felt a bit too much like playmoney. I have watched all of the Bronze Videos and half of the silver ones, but if there is anything anyone can advise me to do to get better, i welcome it. :)

      Nl 25 players tend to take sometimes weird lines.
      Once you bet and he checks, then fold is fine- he would basically never valuebet there with worse hands- other question is would he call your shove AK, AT, Ax since you have 12$- I believe so, that´s why I rather shove than making thought laydown.
      Bet sizing: flop could be 4$, turn 9$, that makes river shove easier and you can be sure that you didn´t give him correct odds if he chase flushdraw.
