      Poker Stars, $0.01/$0.02 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      SB: $1.98 (99 bb) 23/18 after only 60 hands
      Hero (BB): $2.03 (101.5 bb)
      UTG: $3.23 (161.5 bb)
      MP: $1.25 (62.5 bb)
      CO: $1.59 (79.5 bb)
      BTN: $0.91 (45.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with :Qh: :Ad:
      4 folds, SB raises to $0.06, Hero raises to $0.18, SB calls $0.12
      I figure SB has a fairly wide stealing range from SB and so 3bet - when Villian calls what range are we expecting? Pocket pairs? Broadways? Suited connectors? Axs?

      Flop: ($0.36) :Js: :4h: :3d: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.18, SB raises to $0.36, Hero calls $0.18
      Pretty dry board - 2 overcards - facing a SB check so I c-bet 50% - how's my sizing here? I figure his range doesn't hit massively with this board.
      When he check/raises - only a min raise do I assume he has Jx (probably JT+), 44 or 33? possibly 56s? What else would be in his range to c/r? I only need to win 17% of the time tho so I think I get good odds to call, but normally this means they have something at these stakes.

      Turn: ($1.08) :Jh: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks
      From this point I decide to check behind - if he has Jx or 44 or 33 I am pretty much drawing dead - would he be slow-playing again on the turn?

      River: ($1.08) :8h: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks
      completed flush as well on the river - check behind as I have nothing - 2 checks from villian though - is he still slow-playing to try to get me to put something into the pot?

      Flop C-Bet size is fine. Folding on flop is weak I guess. We are calling because we have position, I believe. The rest I think is standard, if he became frisky with 55/66 I don't think he folds and if he did it with some random OC then we win at SD.
