      Preflop his range is probably 22+, A2s+, ATo+, Any face cards? My equity against this range is: 43% but on a decent flop I can stack someone with similar hands to what he showed.

      Flop I have 55% equity against AQo against the range as a whole I have 77% equity. Add in the fold equity (20%?) from the check-raise I feel this was a good move. Any further insights?

      Known players:

      0.05/0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.67 by

      Preflop: Hero is SB with Q:spade: , J:spade:
      5 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, BB raises to $0.90, Hero calls $0.60.

      Flop: ($1.80) 8:spade: , Q:heart: , 9:spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $1.80, Hero raises to $4.50, BB raises to $10.05 (All-In), Hero calls $4.60 (All-In), BB gets uncalled bet back.

      Turn: ($20.00) 5:club:
      River: ($20.00) 7:heart: (1 players)

      Final Pot: $20.00

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows a pair of queens (Qs Js)
      BB shows a pair of queens (Ah Qc)

      BB wins with a pair of queens (Ah Qc)

      Yes I think calling the re-raise was poor. Would you make the first raise or is that a poor move also?

      So postflop play is good? I wasn't sure whether I should just call but then how do I procede if the turn is a blank?

      Edit: Just done a few more runs on the equilator. My equity against overpairs is still fine but if he holds a set it is pretty poor. Of course that is a pretty low chance.

      Nvm that he won like. Been having a few poor days with the odds. As long as I stick to the strategy it'll be fine.
