      this is the first hand of the match
      for me his hand looks like a 9 that wants to see a cheap showdown . what do you think is the best line here ? doing a small raise or shoving ?

      I like this line. Only a fullhouse beats you. I think that only fullhouse or Qx would call your shove. Since you have one Queen, Qx is not likely.

      do you always cbet that small ? I would make it 11$ on the flop and this would lead to a bigger pot after the turn.

      on the river I would shove, I don't think he calls a small raise more than a shove. Also a shove might look more bluffy. If he spiked his boat on the river good for him.

      its a problem of value towning against his range . doesnt matter if he spiked the boat or not . probably a shove looks bluffier especialy in the begining of the match so i a gree with shoving

      Especially if that's the first hand of the match and you've never played with him before I would bet my big hands stronger. He has no clue about your betsizing so you can do whatever is best in this situation.

      Shove is fine, if he is a donkey he might call with a 9, you stack a Q every time (instead of 60$ more) .
