      Well,we both limped,i guess i was in UTG cuz i limped AJ,no way am raising it. Anyway, the flop brings me my second pair. He did donk bet into me, i didnt beleave. Aswell as river card was a blank, i reraised him. And a river brings the second Q and he having it decreased by far, and he faild to get his flush if he was going after it. Should i have folded to his bet?

      Why limp AJ? It doesnt have alot of drawing playability, its really a "TPTK wins" hand, and the last thing you want to do is get into a limped multiway situation hoping just to hit top pair.

      Limpy loose SB could have completed anything at all here. 350 hand sample, 17 WTS 67 W$... doesnt go to showdown with rubbish you can say with a bit of confidence. I dont think there are many hands you beat that SB has here for a river bet. I cant find a call on the river. I might find a call on the flop for MP, can easily find a call for 10c on the turn or even a re-raise to make sure villain pays more than correct odds for flushing, but no way can I find a call for 2/3 pot on that river vs that villain.

      Preflop: Raise or just fold, don't limp.
      As played:
      Flop: It's OK to call once and reevaluate turn.
      Turn: I like your raise here but make it bigger, $0.60 or something similar.
      River: I am folding to a bigger bet here, looks like we are beaten.
