      Preflop: Hero is SB with Q, Q.
      2 folds, MP1 calls $0.02, 2 folds, CO calls $0.02, BU raises to $0.12, Hero calls $0.11, 3 folds.

      Flop: ($0.3) J, A, J (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $0.14, Hero calls $0.14.

      Turn: ($0.58) A (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $0.20, Hero folds, BU gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.58.

      I want ask you, more experienced players, was that call pre flop weak play from me, should I reraise and than fold to reraise from oponent? And what about that call on flop, was that easy fold? Or just how would you play this hand.

      Hi,


      #1


      Knowing nothing about BU i'd probably just 3-bet preflop for value, we're deep but it's nl2 so really i expect to get called by worse hands all day long and i don't have a problem putting more money in postflop with an overpair.

      As played postflop it's fine, his bet sizing sucks so he's likely no good, he could be bluffing he could also be valuebetting a monster. You're out of position with no real interested in calling down in the dark and if you're behind you might not even have 2 outs. Folding the turn is fine without a read on his small bets.

      Preflop and flop are fine. On the turn check/raising looks really spewy without reads, you're actually bluffing repping Qx. Either check/call or bet/fold.

      As played on the river either you were bluffing on the turn and giving up is a good idea, or you raising the turn for some sick value without reads in which case you can't just fold to that bet. I'm guessing you just didn't really know why you raised the turn, so correct that mistake and forget about the river as played.


      Hope it helps.
