      Preflop: Hero is BB with J, K.
      3 folds, SB raises to $1.00, Hero calls $0.75.

      Flop: ($2) 5, 4, Q (2 players)
      SB bets $1.00, Hero calls $1.00.

      Turn: ($4) 5 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $2.25, SB calls $2.25.

      River: ($8.5) Q (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $4.50, SB raises to $9.00, Hero folds, SB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $13.

      if he had the Q why would he minraise the river after c/c the turn? its clearly a fold, but would he play Q like this?

      Hi,

      The second 5 It's not a good card to float with. Also you should bet more to make get more FE.
      River is the same story. He'd call you down with most of his PP in his range. And yeah the minraise looks fishy but it is more then reasonable he is playing Qx this way.

      my line is usually just raise flop, since he´d c-bet/fold there a lot of times
      calling turn is fine. He can play Qx that way, although I´d expect him to lead out boat himself. Taking stab on the river is fine
