      SB posts SB $0.10, BB posts BB $0.25

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.35) Hero has Q:spade: A:heart:

      fold, MP raises to $0.85, fold, Hero calls $0.85, fold, fold

      Flop: ($2.05, 2 players) J:club: A:spade: 6:spade:
      MP bets $1.25, Hero calls $1.25

      Turn: ($4.55, 2 players) 7:spade:
      MP bets $2.25, Hero calls $2.25

      River: ($9.05, 2 players) A:diamond:
      MP checks, Hero checks

      Villain is 18/15/1, is my line ok here? Uf, now when I review it I don't think so.

      I didn't want to 3-bet cause I didn't saw him calling with worse hand then mine, and SB was kind a fishy, so I have nice hand IP.

      Call on flop is maybe ok but he C-bets only 25% so it is questionable and turn is definitely questionable. I would definitely fold on blank river and not sure about spade and this river. Also I think value bet is not an option here cause I think he will check even AK there.

      preflop is fine against that particular player.
      3-bet would be just isolating yourself against better hands.
      On flop I'd bring in a small raise for protection mainly.
      As played: His turn bet looks weak, so I'd bring in a small raise with your 2nd nut flush draw in back.
      On river you have a clear value bet to sth. like 4,50-5,0$.
      If getting raised -> Fold.

      Best regards,

      since you´re ip you can also 3-bet. I doubt he´d get too crazy with too many worse hands, so you can 3-bet fold. If there is going on 3-bet/4-bet wars then AQ is also strong enough hand to 3-bet and then shove over 4-bets
      But call is also ok
      Like how you played flop and turn. if you raise likely not too many worse hands would b/c there or bet/shove
      As played: valuebet river, you have the best hand most of the times and he´d call you down with worse Ax hands
