      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.1/$0.2 No-Limit Hold'em (10 handed)

      Known players:

      Preflop: Hero is BU with Q, A.
      5 folds, MP3 raises to $0.70, CO folds, Hero raises to $2.20, 2 folds, MP3 calls $1.50.

      Flop: ($4.7) 9, 5, 2 (2 players)
      MP3 checks, Hero bets $3.00, MP3 calls $3.00.

      Turn: ($10.7) 2 (2 players)
      MP3 checks, Hero checks.

      River: ($10.7) 4 (2 players)
      MP3 checks, Hero bets $6.20, MP3 calls $6.20.

      Final Pot: $23.1.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows a pair of twos(Q A).
      MP3 shows two pairs, jacks and twos(J J).

      MP3 wins with two pairs, jacks and twos(J J).

      When I look at it now, I would bet AA or KK on turn for protection.
      On the other hand, he's folding AK on the river, but is that enough ?

      You are right, you didnt really sell this river bluff well.

      Its hard to give you credit for QQ+ given the check behind on the turn. You might as well have said in chat "I have two overcards".

      The villain played you perfectly on the river, inducing a bluff instead of making a bet you couldnt possibly call.

      I think AK is more often laying down to the cbet on the flop. If they continue and you check the turn its unlikely that they could lay down AK on the river, possibly even calling with expectation of a split.

      The only way you could have sold QQ+ was with 3 streets, and even then MP3 might have called down if you have an aggressive bluffy image.

      I also don´t like your river bet, since players expect you to bet turn most of your overpairs and if you check turn and bet river, then they would likely call you down with any pair and you´re ahead most of the draws or high card hands. So you can take your free showdown
