      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (4 handed)

      Known players:
      BU = ($6.39)
      SB (Hero) = ($5.32)
      BB = ($7.93)
      CO = ($3.67)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with Q :spade: , Q :heart: .
      CO raises to $0.17, BU folds, Hero raises to $0.56, BB calls $0.51, CO calls $0.39.

      Flop: ($1.68) 2 :heart: , K :spade: , Q :club: (3 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $1.68, CO folds, Hero raises to $3.36, BB folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $3.36.

      I'm pretty sure I overplayed this, but isn't a smooth call also going to show extreme strength. Could I play this for more value.

      I think you can call this and let him bet turn if he wants as there are so not many draws possible. I would bet if he checks back turn.

      Edit after a while: didn't somehow notice you didn't do the cbet, so I would do that in first place.

      A good sized cbet would bring more value imo. With this c/r you show huge strength and 2-pair would be the best that would even consider calling you. And why did you minraise? Maybe even shove would show less strength.

      I have no idea. I think it was sort of a "wow a good hand RAISE RAISE NOW" sort of reaction.

      Agreed, just c-bet like $1.1 and see what happens. As played after you check and he pots it I'd say shoving and calling are pretty close since we're out of position and villain checking back the turn is bad for us, in position we'd probably always call.

      Hope it helps.
