      SB new to the table, looks like regular tag so I was a bit surprised about his complete/call line pre

      PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em, $0.50 BB (6 handed) - Poker-Stars Converter Tool from

      saw flop

      Hero (BB) ($82.45)
      UTG ($50.75)
      MP ($109.10)
      CO ($55.75)
      Button ($58.15)
      SB ($47.50)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with Q, Q
      4 folds, SB calls $0.25, Hero bets $2, SB calls $1.50

      Flop: ($4) 6, 7, 5 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $2.20, SB raises to $8, Hero calls $5.80

      Turn: ($20) 6 (2 players)
      SB bets $9.50, Hero calls $9.50

      River: ($39) Q (2 players)
      SB bets $15, Hero raises to $59, SB calls $13 (All-In)

      Total pot: $95 | Rake: $3

      Hows my line here?

      Flop: Board is ugly so what to do after villains c/r? If I ship it on this flop I think I always will be behind. Would he even c/r with bluff on such a board? Giving up also seems weak.

      Turn: getting a bit better - now I have 13 outs against almost anything (6,Q,) and maybe sometimes I could still be ahead? So I guess call here?

      If his range looks like:JJ-55, 98s, 75s+, 65s, 43s, 98o, 75o+, 65o, 43o, Acxx
      then you have 48%.

      Assuming he does make mistakes from time to time, like stacking off 78 or A7, you should have more equity.
      Including the dead money in the pot, you should definitely shove the flop.

      Your equity looks pretty much the same arround 48%. This proves that you should go all-in here again.

      Your line on the flop is a bit on the passive side but is ok. On the turn though, you have to go all-in because the river can be very tricky. He is going to shove most of them and it's hard to make a good decision if it's not a club, if it's a K, an A or a 7.
      Question for thought, what if the turn is a K,A or a 2?

      after his c/r on flop, call normal sized bet on turn, c/f any other river imo
      you could also call a :club: river when u have implied odds

      I don´t like getting all-in on the flop
      so b/c is fine there
      If you´re behind you have enough outs to improve
      I think calling turn and folding river ui is reasonable
