      No-Limit Hold'em, $0.50 BB (6 handed) - Hold'em Manager Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      saw flop

      CO ($23.75)



      Gerv (Button) ($99.75)
      SB ($71.90)
      BB ($9.25)
      UTG ($63.55)
      MP ($14.10)

      Preflop: Gerv is Button with Q, J
      2 folds, CO bets $1.50, Gerv calls $1.50, 2 folds

      #1. Should I 3bet preflop here? I didn't do this because I would be playing 3bet/fold against a shove which I found such a waste of Q:hJ. Also I keep the pot relatively small and I can build the pot against this 40bb with ease


      Flop: ($3.75) 2, Q, 3 (2 players)
      CO checks, Gerv bets $2.50, CO calls $2.50

      Turn: ($8.75) 2 (2 players)
      CO checks, Gerv bets $6, CO calls $6

      River: ($20.75) 7 (2 players)
      CO checks, Gerv bets $89.75 (All-In), CO calls $13.75 (All-In)


      Do I valuetown myself against better Jx hands or is this a standard line?

      I wouldn't 3-bet preflop without a hand that i want to call vs. this kind of stack size. The rest of the hand is played fine in my opinion. I am exspecting too many 88-JJ type of hands in his range, since he is easily aggressive enough to get in with a KQ/AQ. If I would have seen him slowplay a mediocre hand before though i might check that river

      +1
      I would also call pf, since QJs is good enough to play postflop ip.
      postflop is fine.If you´re not sure how he plays there for example AQ/QK then check behind river is also ok.

      Is shoving all-in on the river better than betting for example exactly what he has left if we want him to call? Does it really looks more bluffy for a fish?

      imo betting 14$ is a little better, since most of the times fish take all-in shove rather strenght than bluff
