      I'm wondering about my line here. I guess flop is obvious cbet.
      On turn I thought of betting half pot, but decided 2/3 to generate fold equity against pocket pairs. As well as AQ might checkraise against a half pot bet. But I dunno.. should I check back turn here?

      On river I found it pretty close. I put him on KQ,JQ,AQ. Should I bet river for value here?

      Known players:

      0,1/0,2 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.84 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with A:spade: , K:spade:
      Hero raises to $0,80, 3 folds, BB calls $0,60.

      Flop: ($1,70) 7:spade: , 2:spade: , Q:diamond: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $1,27, BB calls $1,27.

      Turn: ($4,24) 4:club: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $3,18, BB calls $3,18.

      River: ($10,60) A:heart: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $5,30, BB calls $5,30.

      Final Pot: $21,20

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows a pair of aces (As Ks)
      BB shows two-pair, aces and queens (Ac Qh)

      BB wins with two-pair, aces and queens (Ac Qh)

      preflop and flop=standard
      turn=i also like second barreling b/c he will very likely fold his p/p if they did not hit a set
      river=Personally i like a smaller vbet of about $3-4 to get value from his hands that include a queen
      On another note, why r u playing without a fullstack? You should enable the autorebuy feature that most sites have.

      Yes.. think I agree on the vbet.
      I have autorebuy, it's NL20. I just screwed up and wrote NL25 :)

      since you only have on the turn A high, then I think you also can bet smaller, if you don´t think you can make Qx fold. 88 or smt might call also once again despite the betsize.
      You are only likely beat only AQ and some slowplayed sets on the river, so I like your half potsize bet. He should look you up with Qx and some suspicious players also with some pp-s
