      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Texas Grabem 1.9 by http://www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 3s, Qc
      UTG+1 calls $0.02, UTG+2 folds, MP1 calls $0.02, 2 folds, CO calls $0.02, BU calls $0.02, SB folds, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0.11) Qd, 2s, Qh (5 players)
      Hero checks, UTG+1 checks, MP1 checks, CO checks, BU bets $0.06, Hero calls $0.06, 3 folds.

      Turn: ($0.23) 9d (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU checks.

      River: ($0.23) 4d (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.11, BU raises to $0.30, Hero calls $0.19.

      Final Pot: $0.83

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows [ 3s, Qc ] three of a kind, Queens
      BU shows [ 7d, Kd ] a flush, King high
      BU wins $0.79 USD with a flush, King high.


      The only thing I question is my turn play; I was hoping for the BU to bet into me again. Was it a major error giving him a free card on this board?

      Hi Flipzors

      I redirect you to http://www.pokerstrategy.com/poker-hand-evaluations/ this link where a tutorial gives you the knowledge of posting converted hands. This can be crucial concerning suits (Flushes ;) ) but serves the purpose that an evaluator can process the hand more efficiently!

      I would just bet the flop with your Q3o, if they do not want to hop along well they do not got anything anyway so you do not get any value from them by default.

      As you see by c/c Flop, you have to c/x again since other moves won't give you more value imo. So Id just bet/bet/bet so that answers your TUrn question
