      Preflop I guess it is normal to just call, my opponent looked like a regular and I only had 36 hands from him so I couldn't make an exploitative fold here as I didn't know his fold to 3bet and UTG open raise stats.

      Flop also standard imo.

      Turn I was thinking about a check but the problem is even if he has a weaker Qx (QTs,QJs,KQ) which he decides to check, I will be calling a bet on a blank river. So that is why I made a little bit less than half pot bet to protect my hand, and also to get value from lower pp-s. Maybe it could have been even lower by 1 or 2 bb-s.

      So River brought a very good card for us. I have a valuebet here against AQ,KQ,33. I do not think however that he will call with anything else than trips so I made an almost potsize bet.

      And there came the most disgusting part in this hand his river push. I mean it will definetely never be a bluff, but I don't see that many better hands here neither. QJs is not possible, QJo only 3 combos but I do not think he will openraise them UTG. QQ can be reasonable, but against my pp heavy range he would be better off to continue with a small cbet ott. 33 and 22 can do this line because they don't block my Qx combos

      Opponent: 23/14 36hand he was blocked in the searching engine so I assume he is kinda a reg
